Rep. Shelley Berkley, D-Nev., released two television ads on Wednesday, including the second Spanish-language spot of her Senate campaign.
In the first ad, Berkley says she understands the difficulties facing the unemployed and the dire conditions associated with losing unemployment benefits. In an impassioned appeal, she promises to "fight until every person in the state of Nevada gets their jobs back."
The Spanish-language ad touts her support for the Dream Act. The voice-over accuses Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., and other Republicans of wanting to deport young people who are in the U.S. illegally, and touts the efforts of Berkley and her party to help them "contribute to the only country they know and love."
The ad features Hispanic students in classroom settings and shows Berkley alongside Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill. Locked in a tight contest in one of the races that could determine control of the Senate, Berkley is hoping to boost her chances with high enthusiasm from the state's Hispanics.
