The Mitt Romney campaign is out with a new Spanish-language television ad, entitled “Lo Invito,” or “I Invite You.” The ad features Mitt’s son, Craig Romney.
“We are thrilled that Craig Romney has added his voice to the chorus of voices who day in and day out bring the Governor’s message of economic prosperity and opportunity to the Hispanic community en Español,” said Romney For President National Director of Specialty Media Valentina Weis. “He is a tremendous asset to our efforts to energize our community, especially young Latinos.”
The release of the ad, which will air in target markets across the country, coincided with the launch of the campaign’s new Spanish-language website, www.JuntosConRomney.com.
“The campaign will not cede one inch of ground to the Democratic machine. We’re not competing dollar for dollar with the Obama campaign on Hispanic votes,” said a senior official for the Romney campaign.
The source added: “Nor do we view the Hispanic community – as Democrats do – as a monolith. Make no mistake, this campaign will not take the bait on Obama’s pandering on immigration, which — as today’s ABC News poll shows, and despite MSM hysteria — had no positive effect on noters at all.”
