Obama for America on Friday released two new Spanish ads in Florida titled “De Eso Nada” and “Pagar la Cuenta,” which feature prominent Hispanics in the state.
“De Eso Nada,” features popular Miami media figure, Cristina Saralegui– often referred to as “the Spanish Oprah”—and stresses how President Obama is working to strengthen the economy from the middle class out.
“Pagar la Cuenta,” features Puerto Rican lawyer Nydia Menendez, who lives in Florida. In the ad, Menendez talks about Romney’s opposition to the nomination of the first Latina justice, Sonia Sotomayor, to the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and Priorities USA Action on Friday announced a series of Spanish-language ads against Romney’s “extreme positions on issues important to Hispanic families.” One of the ads running in Florida, “Votemos,” uses some clips of Romney including one of him saying, “ If I were elected and congress passed the Dream Act, would I veto it? And the answer is yes.”
