GOP pushes Spanish-language ads to pander to voters in special election


In their efforts to influence as many voters as possible prior to next week’s competitive special congressional election in Georgia, a Republican group began running ads on Spanish-language television in Atlanta on Monday.

Republicans are hoping to fill Georgia’s vacant Congressional seat with Karen Handel, who is running against Democrat Jon Ossoff on June 20.

To that end, the 6th District Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF), which is aligned with House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., is running a Spanish version of an ad that ties Democrat Jon Ossoff to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Univision and Telemundo.

Although Atlanta’s Hispanic population isn’t large, CLF has expanded its multimillion-dollar campaign to the Spanish language networks.

“Jon Ossoff is all in for Nancy Pelosi’s agenda of bigger government, higher spending and more taxes that is crushing Americans’ pocketbooks,” CLF executive director Corry Bliss explained, adding, “Hispanic families will hear just how liberal, out-of-touch and wholly unfit Jon Ossoff is to represent Georgia’s sixth district.”

Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price left the seat vacant when he left office for the White House.

This is the English translation of the ad CLF began running on Monday:

“Nancy Pelosi and liberals put us twenty trillion in debt.
Jon Ossoff would make things worse, voting for higher taxes, more spending and job-crushing regulations.
Ossoff and Pelosi. Bigger government we can’t afford.
As Georgia’s only woman in Congress, Karen Handel will fight hard for working families. Supporting a Balanced Budget Amendment. Fighting waste.
Putting Georgia taxpayers and Georgia jobs first.”
