Newt Gingrich Spanish radio ad calls Mitt Romney anti-immigrant

20

January

John McCain crushed Mitt Romney four years ago in south Florida and among Hispanic Republicans, but this year he has some prominent Cuban-American pols in his corner. Gingrich is fighting back. Here's the translated test of a new radio ad from Newt Gingrich running in Spanish on south Florida radio stations:

He is the most anti-immigrant candidate.

Mitt Romney may have the fame, but he does not have the substance to be our President.

In Contrast, Newt Gingrich is a candidate that has committed himself to the Hispanic community. A Republican similar to Ronald Reagan, with experience.

Unlike Romney, who uses statements from Castro, Newt Gingrich has fought against the regime with Lincoln and Ileana to approve Helms-Burton; he supported the formation of Radio and TV Marti; and is in favor of holding the Castro brothers accountable for the shooting down of the Brothers to the Rescue airplanes.  

Newt Gingrich has given his word to the Cuban American community in writing and will not let us down. This January 31st vote for Newt Gingrich by punching number 12 in your ballot.

From the Romney campaign:
“This ad is false and full of ridiculous claims. Mario Diaz-Balart, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Lincoln Diaz-Balart all stand with Mitt Romney because he has laid out a clear vision for spreading democracy in our hemisphere. By attacking anyone who supports common-sense border security and immigration reforms as ‘anti-immigrant,’ Newt Gingrich is once again reading from Barack Obama’s liberal talking points.”
