Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney participated in a "Meet the Candidate" event hosted by Univision news anchors Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas on Wednesday, Sept. 19, at the University of Miami. President Obama will participate in a similar event on Thursday afternoon.
The televised interviews, each billed as "El Gran Encuentro," or "the big meeting," are designed to give the candidates a chance to address issues of importance to the Latino community. Co-sponsored by Facebook, both events are available as live streams through Facebook and Univision.com
The candidates agreed to the events after Ramos criticized the Commission on Presidential Debates for not choosing a Latino journalist to moderate one of the three debates.
