Romney travels to Florida but lets his son do the talking in Spanish

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is making another foray into Florida this weekend -- to Naples. Fort Myers and Fort Walton Beach. But the GOP presidential contender is letting his son do the speaking for him to Spanish-speaking audiences in South Florida. In a new radio ad running only in South Florida, Craig Romney talks about his Dad. Listen to it here.

He says: "Un hombre firme. Un hombre de acción.  Un hombre de fe. Un conservador que entiende y respeta a los hispanos, incluyendo al exilio cubano y a otros que han venido a nuestro país en busca de libertad y oportunidades." ("A man of strength. A man of action. A man of faith. A conservative who understands and respects Hispanics and particularly Cuban exiles and others who have come to our country in search of liberty and opportunity."

He adds: "les invito a conocer mejor a mi padre." (I invite you to get to know my father.") But that may be a tad hard to do for South Florida Hispanics this weekend, when his travel takes him to the more traditionally white and conservative enclaves of the state.
