    In Florida, which has gone twice for a Democratic candidate and twice for a Republican in the last four presidential election cycles, the growing Latino population could be the deciding factor for either candidate.

Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher reports from Kissimmee on what both parties are doing to entice the Latino electorate, who comprise nearly half of the county's population.
