Obama reminds Florida Hispanics of Sonia Sotomayor nomination in new ad



The Obama campaign released two new Spanish-language ads in Florida today, including one highlighting his nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court.

A woman lawyer says, "When she was nominated by President Obama, we all celebrated – Puerto Ricans and all Hispanics.  But Mitt Romney was opposed to Sotomayor. He offended me when he stated he would have voted against her nomination. … and now he wants our vote for President?"

The second spot features entertainer Cristina Saralegui and talks about the economic recovery.
