Ads Blast Colo. Dems for Stifling Hispanics in Crucial Senate Race

By    |   Friday, 17 Oct 2014 01:03 PM

A conservative super PAC has launched scathing ads in Colorado, a crucial battleground in the fight for control of the U.S. Senate, accusing Democratic Sen. Mark Udall and other liberals of waging a "war on Hispanic hopes and values."

First-term Sen. Udall is in a tight race with Republican Rep. Cory Gardner just weeks before the Nov. 4 election.

The ads are paid for by the Conservative War Chest (CWC), which won plaudits last year from talk show host Rush Limbaugh and The Wall Street Journal columnist Kim Strassel for "cracking the Democratic code" in key political races.

CWC began airing the ads — produced in both English and Spanish — Thursday on Telemundo and Univision in Colorado.

The super PAC has also launched ad campaigns in support of Republicans in Iowa, North Carolina, and Arkansas.

The Colorado ads come just as the struggling Udall campaign released a poll trying to persuade the media it was doing well with Hispanic voters.

"Extreme liberals stifle Hispanic dreams and trample on their values," said Mike Flynn, spokesman for the Conservative War Chest. "Hispanics are the quintessential 'Reagan voters.' They believe in a strong economy, strong families, and a strong military. Through their policies, liberals like Mark Udall have turned their backs on these citizens for too long."

Flynn noted that liberal economic policies have blocked the jobs and opportunities that provide Hispanics with a path to the American Dream. "Generations of immigrants were able to build new lives for themselves and their children in America," he said. "Liberals are forfeiting those dreams.

"Hispanics are also the most decorated ethnic group in the U.S. military. When Sen. Dick Durbin compared U.S. soldiers to Nazis, no Senate Democrat felt strongly enough about his horrible slur to call for his resignation from leadership. The refusal of Mark Udall and other Senate Democrats to take real action against Durbin's slur is an insult not only to Hispanics, but to everyone who has proudly served our nation."

The English and Spanish ads castigate Udall and his supporters' stance on military readiness, Obamacare, religious freedom, abortion, traditional marriage, and First Amendment rights.

"The conservative message has no language barrier," Flynn added. "Republicans would do well to remember that Reagan's message of growth, defense, and values is as powerful in Spanish as it is in English.

"Whether you are Hispanic or from India, France, or Ghana, America is that 'shining city on the hill.' Liberals have mortgaged the city and are pulling up the economic ladder, blocking the dreams of millions.

"Our ads also show there is a better path for all Americans. Yes, we must unite to tear down the liberal wall of government dependence, but we must also unite to build a better tomorrow for ourselves and future generations."

Flynn urged voters to go the Conservative War Chest website, where the organization also has a video on past efforts and a Power Point presentation on the strategy for this year.
