Fernand Amandi, from Miami, hits a grand slam in presidential election ... by gimleteye

You know Fernand Amandi, of Bendixen & Amandi International in Miami.

Fernand, Sergio Bendixen and their team managed and implemented the Obama campaign's Hispanic outreach. While the reporters and TV cameras were at Palacios de los Jugos, chasing Mitt Romney having Cuban coffee, only a few miles away Fernand was at work on the Hispanic vote for Obama. Important? You tell me.

On EOM's list of most influential in Miami, Fernand Amandi is at the top. (Photo taken with David Axelrod, election night in Chicago.)

And he is a great guy, too. We should all be proud to have him in our midst.

Hispanics are minorities, a natural Democratic Party constituency. Did he really need to do any outreach? Blacks voted for Obama at a 95% rate. Is the black vote organizer even higher up on your list?

Palau...Cubans are not Democrats (hell, most of them think Romney was too liberal) and 47% of them voted for the President. Major milestone. Job well done Fernand!
