From the San Francisco Chronicle:  
California Republicans are seeing political gold in California's water problems, hoping to steal the issue from Democrats and win support from one of that party's key constituencies - Latinos.... But wooing Latino voters will be a challenge. Despite their mutual opposition to abortion, at least among Catholics, Latinos and Republicans do not agree on many issues, said Louis DeSipio, a professor of political science at UC Irvine who studies the Latino electorate.
