Republican National Hispanic Assembly

, and the party's interests and candidates within the Hispanic population.

The group is an outgrowth of the Spanish Speaking Advisory Committee of the Republican National Committee, which itself came to be due to successful efforts to attract Hispanic voters to the presidential candidacy of Richard Nixon.

The RNHA was officially born at the organizational meeting that took place on July 11-13, 1974 in Crystal City, Virginia. Ben Fernandez, a businessman and economist who later became the first Hispanic presidential candidate in 1980, was the first chairman of the RNHA.
