ICYMI: "Portman woos Latino voters with ad in Spanish"

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Yesterday, the Portman for Senate Campaign released its latest TV ad titled, “Mi prioridad," which is running on Spanish-language stations in Ohio. The campaign will spend $250,000 running the advertisement on TV and targeted to Spanish-speaking voters online. The campaign has set a goal of receiving 1 million views across all online platforms before Election Day. In case you missed it, here is what they had to say:

As part of the ad launch, the campaign also sent out the following email to over 500,000 supporters from NFL Hall of Famer, Cincinnati legend, and Portman for Senate Hispanic Leadership Council Chair, Anthony Muñoz: 


I’ve known Rob Portman for over 20 years, and I’m honored to call him a friend and co-chair his Hispanic Leadership Council. Rob's top priority in the Senate is to create better-paying jobs for working families, and the campaign highlights his work in his new Spanish-language TV ad. 

Rob is a leader on so many issues that impact our state, and he's fighting to improve job-training programs, cut regulatory red tape and strengthen small businesses. Rob wants every working family to have access to a good-paying job, and he will keep fighting for Ohio's working families in the Senate. 

The stakes are high in Ohio's Senate race -- our state could very well determine who controls the United States Senate. I’m excited to support Rob's efforts to help make sure Ohio keeps moving forward.
