FILE - In this Jan. 3, 2013, file photo, Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., center right, stands with his family for a ceremonial photo with Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, center left, in the Rayburn Room of the Capitol after the new 113th Congress convened in Washington. A staffer for Rep. Franks, who is identified as Hispanic on the White House Press gallery list, told The Associated Press Franks doesn't consider himself Hispanic. But the conflicting numbers of hispanic members of congress illustrate just how elastic Hispanic identity can be, and how it might be pulled for political purposes as parties seek to appeal to the growing Hispanic electorate.
