ARIZONA— Today, People For the American Way’s Latinos Vote! program, in partnership with Arizona Wins, announced its fourth Spanish-language ad in Arizona, Focused on Latino voters, the ad is about the importance of voting for Joe Biden to protect our health care.

The 60-second, “Health-COVID” ad began airing earlier this week and runs through November 3rd in an effort to persuade Arizona’s movable Latino voters to cast ballots for Joe Biden. This Spanish language radio effort began eight weeks ahead of the election and has run a new ad every two weeks since. Previous to this fourth ad, People For’s Latinos Vote! program Spanish-language radio ads include: “Abuelita,” “Education/Resilience,” and “Faith and Family.”

Listen to the latest ad here. Read the Spanish and English transcript below. English translations for the previous ads are also below.

There are an estimated 32 million eligible Latino voters nationwide and an estimated 992,000 Latino voters in Arizona, which represents 22 percent of all eligible voters in the state. This year, Latino voters will be the largest racial or ethnic minority participating in a presidential election. Analysis shows that if Arizona’s large Latino populations in areas including Tucson, Phoenix, and Maricopa County, cast their ballots for Biden, the Latino vote could help flip the state from red to blue.

“From his gross failure to manage the pandemic to his dangerous anti-Latino agenda, Donald Trump has inflicted immeasurable suffering on the Latino community,” said President of People For the American Way Ben Jealous. “We know that Latino voters can play a decisive role in the outcome of this election. And with less than two weeks before Election Day, it is vitally important to mobilize each and every registered Latino Arizonan to the polls to defeat Trump and his hate for good.”

“After four years of Trump’s failures and animosity toward Latinos, it’s past time for us to move forward as a nation,” said People For the American Way board member, civil rights and labor leader Dolores Huerta. “Latino voters in Arizona can play a critical role in this election, and we need to make sure that they are engaged, organized and ready to flex our political power at the ballot box.”

 “As this ad points out, Joe Biden has a proven track record of managing the federal response to public health crises and boosting our economy during times of suffering,” said People For the American Way Political Director Lizet Ocampo. “But we need to make sure that every Latino voter in Arizona turns out on Election Day to make their voices heard against Donald Trump.”
