Mitt Romney hits Spanish-language radio with new Diaz-Balart, Ros- Lehtinen ad

Mitt Romney is waging an all-out battle for the Spanish-language vote (namely in Miami). He's running a new radio spot featuring Reps Mario Diaz-Balart and Ileana Ros Lehtinen. He's already advertising on Spanish-language TV, plans to give a Cuba-Latin American policy speech in Miami Wednesday and appear at the Hispanic Leadership Network on Friday.

The text:

CONGRESSMAN MARIO DIAZ-BALART: “I am Mario Diaz-Balart.  Republicans should elect the best candidate to go up against President Obama, the candidate with the plan to get our economy going and create jobs.  I am convinced that Mitt Romney is that candidate.  That is why I am with Romney.”

CONGRESSWOMAN ILEANA ROS-LEHTINEN: “I am Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.  Mitt Romney will fight against the despotic efforts of Castro and Chavez.  He understands the urgency to stop them and increase our support for the valiant heroes who fight for democracy in Cuba.  The policy of Obama has failed.  We need the leadership and conviction of Romney to change course in our hemisphere.  That is why I am with Romney.”

 FORMER CONGRESSMAN LINCOLN DIAZ-BALART: “I am Lincoln Diaz-Balart.  The presidential election this year will be decisive for the cause of liberty.  We have an obligation to confront Barack Obama with the candidate who has the greatest opportunity to win. That is why I am with Romney.”
VOICEOVER: “Paid for by Romney for President, Incorporated.”

MITT ROMNEY: “I am Mitt Romney.  I am running for President and I approve this message.”
