How a Republican Stays Afloat in a Hispanic-Majority Border District

Inside a local radio station near New Mexico's dusty eastern border, Steve Pearce needs just one take as he breezily speaks-in English-to his district's Hispanic community during a mock 15-minute radio "interview" for a paid campaign infomercial to be aired next month on Spanish-language stations.

Ambrose: Compromise on immigration possible
