McCain's 1st General Election Radio Ads Are in Spanish
The first radio ads of John McCain's general election campaign are 60-second, Spanish-language spots airing in New Mexico and Nevada.
"Estamos Unidos con John McCain" ("We Are United With John McCain") delivers a hopeful message about McCain's economic proposals.
A general translation of the Spanish-language ads:
Here in (Nevada/New Mexico), when we're buying groceries at the supermarket, we don't have a political party. When we're filling up the gas tank, we're not Republicans, Democrats or independents. We're Hispanics, and we're suffering together in these times of economic uncertainty.
We need someone who has a good economic plan. That's John McCain. His plan is realistic, not political. It'll help revitalize the local, and national economy. He's proposed that Congress get rid of the gas tax during the summer months. He wants middle class families to pay less taxes, so that we have more money in our pocket, and less in Washington. And with his plan called HOME, he wants to help families suffering through the foreclosure crisis.
John McCain is optimistic, and he knows that with everyone united -- Republicans, Democrats, and independents -- we can find solutions to fill our gas tanks, our grocery carts, and our dreams. For that reason, in (Nevada/New Mexico), we're united with John McCain.
UPDATE 2:54 p.m. ET: While the YouTube links to the ads call them "Estamos Unidos Con McCain," a campaign news release formally calls the ads, "Economy."
