50 Politicos to Watch: Jennifer Sevilla Korn

RNC Communications - July 19, 2013

The Republican Party has acknowledged it needs to improve its standings among the Hispanic community — and Jennifer Sevilla Korn is ready to help.

The former executive director of the Hispanic Leadership Network, Bush-Cheney ’04 national Hispanic director and Bush White House alum recently joined the Republican National Committee to help with its outreach to the Hispanic community.

“She’s somebody who’s been in the trenches in this fight long before there was obviously a much greater focus on Hispanic conservatives and Hispanic Republicans,” said Brian Walsh, president of the American Action Network, which houses HLN. “Her breadth of experience makes her the obvious and kind of exceptional talent for the position that she’s now in.”

Korn was born in East Los Angeles and lived in Southern California until she came to D.C. to work for Bush in 2003. Her mother and grandparents were born in Mexico.

She said she first became interested in politics at Pepperdine University and that her interest specifically in Hispanic outreach came largely from her upbringing in Southern California.

“When I was in college, I had a great political science professor who challenged us to volunteer on a political campaign. It only took a few days to find out I was a conservative and loved working on campaigns,” she said. “I witnessed the power that people can have if they get involved and have been in politics for 18 years now.”
