RNC whacks Sebelius in Spanish-language FL audio ads over Obamacare

From a press release:

WASHINGTON –With 10 months to go until the midterm elections, the RNC today launched Spanish-language digital ads on<> and 30-second audio ads on Univision’s music radio app Uforia in the Miami media market. The ads coincide with HHS Secretary Sebelius’ trip to Florida.

The digital ads invite listeners who have been negatively impacted by ObamaCare to share their stories at<>.The ad highlights President Obama’s infamous Lie of the Year, by using the president’s own words and the words of Univision’s Jorge Ramos. The ad exposes President Obama’s broken promise that people would be able to keep their healthcare plans under ObamaCare, which will be an important issue in the November election.

“We are very excited to be the first political party to advertise on Uforia and thrilled to connect with Univision’s digital audiences and cultivate increased awareness about Obamacare. This unique opportunity allows us to connect and listen to the concerns of Hispanics who have been hurt by Obamacare.

“Because President Obama broke his promise to the American people, a wave of cancellation notices have hit Latino families and small businesses. It’s not fair that Obamacare is taking opportunities away from hardworking people. Nor is it fair to Hispanic millennials to be burdened with higher insurance costs,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

A Pew poll shows Hispanics’ disapproval of ObamaCare has increased 11 points just in the last several months.
