Mitt Romney isn’t the only GOP candidate targeting Latino voters, Newt Gingrich is on the bandwagon too.
Gingrich’s Spanish-language radio advertisement is another attack on Romney.
The ad points out that in Romney’s 2008 campaign he went around using phrases by Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
Albeit mistakenly, “Romney talked about Patria o muerte, venceremos – Fatherland or death, we shall overcome – a trademark phrase Castro used to close his speeches,” reports the Miami Herald.
Gingirich’s ad didn’t go unnoticed by Romney’s campaign team who called his attacks “ridiculous.”
Is Romney’s 2008 slipup as bad as Herman Cain’s ’How do you say delicious in Cuban’?
Gingrich is running this translated ad, in Spanish on Miami radio stations, according to the Tampa Bay Times. (The voice in the ad is not Gingrich.)
“He is the most anti-immigrant candidate.
Mitt Romney may have the fame, but he does not have the substance to be our President.
In Contrast, Newt Gingrich is a candidate that has committed himself to the Hispanic community. A Republican similar to Ronald Reagan, with experience.
Unlike Romney, who uses statements from Castro, Newt Gingrich has fought against the regime with Lincoln and Ileana to approve Helms-Burton; he supported the formation of Radio and TV Marti; and is in favor of holding the Castro brothers accountable for the shooting down of the Brothers to the Rescue airplanes.
Newt Gingrich has given his word to the Cuban American community in writing and will not let us down. This January 31st vote for Newt Gingrich by punching number 12 in your ballot.”
