This week the Democratic Party unveiled Spanish language ads and robocalls targetting the Republicans for their role in the government shutdown. Republican Senators Marco Rubio (FL) and Ted Cruz (TX) have been specifically singled out.
The robocall script for Florida is translated as follows:
I’m calling from the DNC with a GOP shutdown alert.
Senator Marco Rubio was an architect of the GOP’s government shutdown and it’s hurting the Latino community in Florida.
Rubio’s shutdown is costing the economy as much as $10 billion a week and Republicans are not ready to pay our nation’s bills.
Take action – call the Florida GOP at 850-222-7920 and demand that the GOP stop holding the economy hostage.
Paid for by the Democratic National Committee. (202) 863-8000. Not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.
A new Gallup poll shows that the favorability rating of Republicans among Americans has sunk to a new low at 28%.
Yesterday Latino issue organizations hosted a telephone press conference expressing that Latino children are bearing the brunt of the effects of the government shutdown and called for Congress to reopen the federal government.
