Red potato latkes?

SO and I are having friends over for a Chanukah celebration Sunday and we have several large bags of red potatoes left from a farm pickin' trip back in October. I've always used russets for latkes, but can reds be used? I'm always up for trying something new, but I'm afraid the lower starch content will mean they will fall apart and/or not crisp up. Is there a way to compensate or should I just go out and buy a bag of russets?
