SEIU is launching a Spanish-language ad campaign against four House Republicans
The union is targeting Republican Reps. Cory Gardner and Mike Coffman of Colorado, as well as David Valadao of California and Joe Heck of Nevada with a round of Spanish-language television ads that will run for about two weeks, SEIU officials said. The ad buy is in the mid-six figures. [...]
“The actions of Republicans in Congress, remind me my grandma’s saying: Tell me who you’re with, and I’ll tell you who you are,” the ad’s female narrator says, according to a translation provided by SEIU. “Why? Because Republicans again and again insult our community, and blocked immigration reform.
“And the worst: They have voted against our future and our Dreamers,” the ad continues. “This November, we must go to the polls and vote against Republicans.”
Valadao did co-sponsor immigration reform legislation, but with his party blocking it from coming to a vote, he has to be seen as part of the problem, the union argues.
