Obama: Hispanic Vote Is Crucial

La Opinin, Posted: Oct 29, 2008

WASHINGTON, D.C. With presidential elections one week away, Democratic candidate Barack Obama said he needs Hispanic voters to vote in record numbers in order to secure an Obama-Biden victory, implement economic changes that will generate more jobs, reduce taxes for the working class, and stop families from losing their homes.

In an interview with impreMedia, Obama admitted that the economic recovery would not be easy and it wouldn't be done overnight. But, he added, "I hope everyone understands what is at stake: If we are going to try to make fundamental changes, comprehensive immigration reform, and a health care system that works for everyone, then we will have to see Hispanics vote in record numbers. In the swing states, (Latino voters) can make all the difference in the world."

The Obama campaign has bought a half an hour of primetime television air time on Wednesday evening. "It won't just be me talking," said Obama. "We will have families, including a Latino family, talking about what they are going through in their lives so people understand what this election is all about and what we are fighting for." The message will also air in Spanish on Univision.
