Barack Obama's campaign has released a new, Spanish-language radio ad. Titled "Bootstraps," it makes a case for the candidate by using his personal history.
Here's the English script for the voice-over in the ad:
Some people have power and connections.
But most of us have to make our own way through life.
This is true even for the man who could become the next president ... Barack Obama.
He grew up without a father -- raised by his mother with the support of his grandparents.
Through student loans and hard work, he graduated from college.
Obama never forgot his roots ...
He worked with churches to help families get job training and after-school care for their children.
In the state Senate, he passed a law that helped reduce the welfare rolls by over 80 percent by helping families to secure jobs.
And despite the political pressure, Obama has stood with us for immigration reform and spoke out for our veterans.
It's time we had a president who understands we all deserve a chance to make our own way.
