Romney's Fla. Ads Tie Obama to Chavez, Castro

Thursday, 01 Nov 2012 10:53 AM

 

Mitt Romney's campaign is running a Spanish-language ad in Florida that claims Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro's niece would support President Barack Obama.

The ad, first reported by The Miami Herald, is airing at least in the Miami area.

It shows a clip of Chavez saying that if he were American, "I'd vote for Obama." The Venezuelan leader did say that in September, when he also called Obama "a good guy."

Venezuela has had tense relations with the U.S. government for years, even though the United States is the top buyer of its oil.

There's a similar clip featuring Castro's niece, Mariela, who has no official link to the Cuban government. She's a noted advocate of gay rights and has praised Obama's stand in support of same sex marriage.
