Obama Courts Latino Vote


President Obama’s reelection campaign has outspent GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney by a ratio of 20 to 1 in an effort to lock up the Latino vote.

Politico reports:

Obama’s campaign has spent more than $2 million on Spanish-language television and radio ads since mid-April, according to several sources who track media buys.

That’s on top of the $4 million the pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action and the Service Employees International Union have committed to spending through the summer on Spanish TV and radio ads hitting Romney in Colorado, Nevada and Florida.

In contrast, Mitt Romney has spent about $110,000 on Spanish-language ads during the general election, sources say.
