FILE - In this Sept 17, 2012 file photo, then-Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney addresses the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Los Angeles. Having lost the popular vote in five of six presidential elections, Republicans are plunging into intense self-examination. Hard-core conservatives say the party should abandon comparative centrists like John McCain and Mitt Romney. But establishment Republicans note the party still runs the House and President Obama’s popular-vote margin was smaller than before. Perhaps the GOP’s biggest challenge: improving relations with America's fast-growing Hispanics. (AP Photo/David McNew, File)
