CWA's Spanish Ad Blasts Canseco

Communications Workers of America is getting bilingual with a new Spanish-language ad blasting Rep. Quico Canseco, who is in a tight reelection bid in Texas.

Democrat Pete Gallego is challenging Canseco to represent the 23rd District. The ad is running for 14 days on Spanish-language broadcasts in San Antonio. CWA wouldn't disclose the amount of the ad buy.

The spot features San Antonio-area CWA members. The narrator says in Spanish: "When we vote, it should be for someone who understands our values," and then goes on to depict Canseco as having voted for "tax cuts for millionaires ... to make it harder for our children to go to college [and] .. to end Medicare."

Test out your Spanish skills by listening to the ad yourself:
