The Romney campaign announced a new Spanish-language comercial Saturday featuring Latino voters talking about their lost faith in President Obama.
Mitt Romney has trailed far behind Obama among swing-state Hispanic voters, but campaign aides say they will make a play for key Latino demographics in places like Florida. One aide told BuzzFeed last month that they would put “substantial” resources toward Spanish-language media after the convention. A new PPP poll shows there may be room for Romney to make headway; it shows Romney down just seven points — 45-52 — among Florida Latinos, which represents a narrowing of the gap.
The campaign did not immediately respond to a question about where the ad would air.
UPDATE: The ad will air in Florida as well as other targeted battleground states with large Hispanic populations.
