The Democratic National Committee launched a Spanish-language campaign Thursday targeting Latino voters in Florida, Texas, Nevada and Arizona as the fiscal impasse in Washington continues to keep the government closed and threatens the nation's financial health.
The effort will include robocalls and online ads on Twitter, Facebook and Google. Calls in Texas and Florida target Republican senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio while the calls to Arizona and Nevada target the Republican Party.
Nationally, the DNC is running a Facebook and Google ad campaign to engage supporters around the country around the GOP Shutdown.
"We’ll continue to hold Republicans like Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz accountable for shutting down the government and risking the full faith and credit of the United States," DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in a statement.
Here's a sample of the robocall script from Florida:
"I’m calling from the DNC with a GOP Shutdown Alert.
Senator Marco Rubio was an architect of the GOP’s government shutdown and it's hurting the Latino community in Florida.
Rubio’s shutdown is costing the economy as much as $10 billion a week and Republicans are ready to not pay our nation’s bills.
Take action – call the Florida GOP at 850-222-7920 and demand that the GOP stop holding the economy hostage.
Paid for by the Democratic National Committee. (202) 863-8000. Not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee."
