"In the next 50 days or so, in the Latino community and among young people, the whole issue is going to be turnout," Grijalva told The Hill.

"Do they turn out to vote? Because if they turn out to vote they are going to vote for Hillary," he added.

Grijalva was the first member of Congress to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders for president. He switched to backing Clinton after she became the presumptive Democratic nominee in June.
