Hey friend. Long time no see.
Totally, totally agree. One's surroundings absolutely helps, although I'd argue that southwest Ks is a lot like southeast CO, where my family is from. It is different than, say, Los Angeles, although both are attractive to Hispanics for various reasons. I think of politicians in those areas as being more attuned to what is important to the local Latino community than national politicians are.
