Spanish-language ad for Hillary Clinton -- featuring a Miami woman -- will air during Copa America final


Democrat Hillary Clinton's first Spanish-language TV ad of the general election will air during Sunday's Copa America final -- and it will feature a Miami woman.

"At 8 years old, we moved to the United States," Luisa Santos says in the 60-second spot. "My mom left everything behind to give my sister and I a new opportunity." (Her mother, Ruth Castillo, stands with Santos in the ad.)

Santos, who was born in Colombia, owns Lulu's Ice Cream on Biscayne Boulevard. The ad also includes other Hispanics pushing Clinton's message to reject divisiveness from Republican Donald Trump.

In an interview with the Miami Herald, Santos said she became a U.S. citizen in April. The November election will be her first time casting a ballot -- for Clinton.

"She is most aligned with my hopes for this country," said Santos, who got involved with the campaign in Marc after actress Eva Longoria -- a Clinton supporter -- held a campaign event focused on women entrepreneurs at Lulu's Ice Cream.

The Copa America final will be played in New Jersey between powerhouse teams Argentina and Chile.
