LAS VEGAS (AP) - Republican congressional candidate Danny
Tarkanian says President Barack Obama changed his deportation
policy just months before the election to use Hispanics as a
"political tool" to win a second term.

Speaking in Las Vegas Wednesday to a breakfast hosted by
Hispanics in Politics, Tarkanian criticized Obama for not
delivering on his promise to enact immigration reform and suggested
the president intended to use the issue as a re-election ploy to
energize Latino voters.

But the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Tarkanian's remarks were met with hostility by some who said Republicans were to blame for blocking immigration reform in Congress.

Tarkanian is running for Nevada's newly created 4th
Congressional District seat. He faces Democrat Steven Horsford in
November. Horsford is the outgoing state Senate majority leader.
