GOP Ad Highlights Economy, Targets Latinos
DENVER (AP) – Another campaign ad attacking President Barack Obama is hitting the airwaves Wednesday — and the Republican National Committee is aiming this one just at Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico.
The ad continues Republican themes of blaming the president for the poor economy and highlights the unemployment rate and national debt.
The RNC is pairing the ad with Spanish-language radio ads. Republicans have said they intend to press harder to pick off Latino voters from Democrats than they did in 2008. The radio ad makes similar points about the struggling economy.
Republicans didn’t say how much they’re spending on the ads, which will run for about a week. The RNC notes that both Nevada and New Mexico have Republican Latino governors and says Latinos “have a home in the GOP.”
