RNC hires Hispanic initiative director

The Republican National Committee (RNC) has brought on longtime GOP strategist Jennifer Sevilla Korn to be its national field director for Hispanic initiatives, in a move aimed at bolstering the party's outreach to Latino voters.

"I am excited to announce that Jennifer Sevilla Korn will join the RNC as Deputy Political Director and National Field Director for Hispanic Initiatives," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. "Jennifer will play a key role in directing our Hispanic engagement efforts to ensure that Republicans are building new relationships in the Hispanic community."

Korn most recently ran the Hispanic Leadership Network, a center-right outside group that focused on building bridges between the GOP and Hispanic voters. She also served as President George W. Bush's national Hispanic director in 2004. She will also be an RNC deputy political director.
