Yes, I am. But it's deeper than than. I think ALL politicians will use anything they can to get voters of all ethnic identities, religions, economic levels, employment status, etc. to identify with them and get the votes.
I don't care about the ethnicity of a candidate, I only care about their stance on issues. That's what I want to hear about. I don't vote down strict party lines; I vote on the candidate whose stance on issues I most identify with.
I do think it's really sad though that some people will not vote for a candidate just because of race or religion. I can't believe we haven't gotten past that in parts this country.
