Clinton ads hit Philly TV and radio — in Spanish
Just one week away from the contested Pennsylvania primary, Hillary Clinton's campaign has launched two Spanish-langauge ads in the Philadelphia media market.
The TV ad, titled "Una Bandera" (A flag), portrays the former Secretary of State as a career defender of Latinos and immigrant communities. It also pits her against the Republican frontrunner, Donald Trump, highlighting that time he called immigrants "criminales" (criminals) and "violadores" (rapists).
The central message? Clinton is a warrior for immigrants against the business mogul.
"Hillary Clinton siempre ha estado a nuestro lado," the ad's narrator says. Translation: Hillary Clinton has always been on our side.
On the airwaves, Clinton is running a 60-second spot called "Diversidad" (Diversity). You can listen to it here. Latinos comprise of about 6 percent of the state and about 14 percent of Philadelphia, according to most recent Census figures.
Similar to the TV ad, it seizes on Trump's anti-immigrant fervor with dramatic soundbites and stormy music. Neither of the ads mention Clinton's Democratic opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, whom she faces on next Tuesday's ballot.
Clinton herself closes out the ads in English with the stamp of approval.
Full disclosure: The Clinton campaign has purchased one Spanish-language ad in AL DÍA's weekly print edition.
