DCCC Launches "Putting Children First" Spanish Language Ads in South Florida

Chairman Chris Van Hollen announced today that the DCCC will target three South Florida Republicans for voting against SCHIP which provides health insurance for children. The DCCC's "Putting Children First" campaign includes Spanish-language radio ads in the districts of Florida Representatives Lincoln Diaz-Balart, Mario Diaz-Balart and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. The initial ad buy is for one week.

"In their districts, Republicans are feeling the heat for supporting President Bush instead of the health care for Florida's kids," Van Hollen said. "We will continue to go district by district to hold Republicans who continue to vote in lockstep with President Bush and against children accountable."

Text and Translation of the Traffic & Weather Sponsorship Ads Against Lincoln Diaz-Balart:

Similar ads will run against Mario Diaz-Balart and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

“El Presidente Bush en contra de los niños estadounidenses. El Congresista Diaz-Balart tiene que tomar una decisión entre el seguro médico para 10 millones de niños o en continuar su apoyo a Presidente Bush, quien esta dispuesto a quitárselos. Dígale a Lincoln Diaz-Balart que escoja a nuestros niños.”

English Translation:

"President Bush versus America's kids. Congressman Diaz-Balart has a choice: health care for 10 million children or continue to stand with Bush to block it. Tell Lincoln Diaz-Balart to choose our kids."
