The Democratic Party is losing touch with Hispanic voters because President Joe Biden’s policies are too “woke,” says a former California Democratic leader.

Gloria Romero, a former state senator who served as Democratic majority leader from 2001 until 2008, told “Fox & Friends First” that Biden is losing Latino support because his party has left behind values shared by those voters.

“My message is of extreme disappointment. I represented one of the most Democratic Latino districts in California, East L.A., and whether we are Cuban-American in Florida or Mexican-American in South Texas, Nevada, or here in California, we are sending a very powerful message to the Democratic Party that enough is enough,” Romero said in an interview on Friday.

“We have choices and we are looking beyond the Democratic Party,” she said, adding that Democrats no longer resemble the party of JFK or even of former President Barack Obama when he was elected in 2008.

“Today’s party is complete wokeism run amok,” Romero said. She criticized the Biden administration’s use of terms like “birthing people” in place of “mothers” or “women” as an example of how Democrats are moving too far away from traditional values shared by Hispanics and Latinos.
