A new television ad is airing in the presidential battleground state of Nevada and it tells Hispanic voters their that President Barack Obama is too pro-abortion to earn their vote.
With Hispanic voters making up 20-25 percent of the Nevada electorate, the ad has the potential to increase Mitt Romney’s standing there by highlighting how Obama’s pro-abortion record doesn’t square with the culturally pro-life values most Hispanics have.
The text of the ad follows:
“President Obama has endorsed same-sex marriage. He favors unlimited abortion. He has even tried to force churches to violate their beliefs.”
“President Obama is too radical. He does not share our values, he undermines them.”
Alfonso Aguilar, executive director of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, released a statement about the ad.
“President Obama has endorsed positions that run counter to the values of Hispanic families,” he said. “Even among pro-abortion politicians, he is considered radical. The HHS mandate that punishes businesses and religious organizations and imposes millions in fines is an abomination. Hispanic voters cannot tolerate this.”
Obama won Nevada in 2008 thanks to his receiving 66 percent of the Hispanic vote and Romney will need to significantly cut into that percentage if he hopes to take the Silver State and put it in his column in November.
Two versions of the ad follow, the English and Spanish:
