Republican National Committee Co-Chairman Tommy Hicks Jr. says that Judge Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court nomination could be a motivator for Latino voters who like Barrett are largely Catholic and pro-life. 

During an interview on "Just the News AM," Hicks said that the Latino and Hispanic communities are growing more supportive of President Trump and his reelection bid.

"We're gonna win the Hispanic vote," he said.

Hicks also said the "silent majority" is comprised of all Americans, and that the Hispanic community is very pro-life, Catholic and socially conservative, all part of the Trump campaign platform.

"Because of this change agent of a president that we have, the Republican Party has been able to open itself up and bring people in that have never been in this party before," Hicks told show host Carrie Sheffield. "You're seeing in these rallies 10, 15, 20%, people who have never voted before."

He also said Barrett is a great example of a jurist who interprets the law as opposed to legislating from the bench.

"Real everyday Americans want to see a jurist who interprets the law and does not have an agenda so that's really important for the American people," he said.
