Photo: Mitt Romney's Son Stars in Campaign's Latest Spanish-Language Ad "Los Invito"
On Wednesday, Mitt Romney’s campaign released its eighth Spanish-language ad, letting Craig Romney do the talking once again.
The ad coincides with the launching of ‘Juntos Con Romney’, the campaign’s new Spanish-language website.
The ad, titled “Los Invito”, features Craig Romney, the Republican presidential candidate’s youngest son, inviting Latino voters to get to know his father.
Translated, Craig says, “I want to tell you who my father is, Mitt Romney. He is a man of great convictions. He’s been married for over 40 years to my mom. Together they have five sons and 18 grandchildren. He loves our country greatly. What he has achieved has been through hard work — and it is with that same dedication that he will fight to get our country on the right track and create jobs.”
The youngest Romney son’s grasp of the Spanish language was not a surprise for many, as the campaign first used Craig in a Florida campaign ad in January, in which he stated, “The United States represents liberty, opportunity, where anything is possible. I am Craig Romney. My father, Mitt Romney, believes in those American values because he has lived them, and will fight to restore the greatness of our nation.”
Craig lived in Chile during his time with a Mormon mission and there is little doubt Republicans are glad to have a fluent Spanish speaking to speak for Romney, as the presidential hopeful’s Spanish leaves much to be desired (see the last few seconds of any of the Spanish ads.)
So what do you think? Does Romney, with help from son Craig, have a chance with Latino voters?
