Washington (CNN) – Chasing Latino votes in the neck and neck California race for governor, Republican candidate Meg Whitman's new Spanish language ad details a better, brighter future for California's Latino kids.
Whitman's new ad, "Mejor Educación," or "Better Education", highlights her stance on education and the importance of education for Latino children.
"California has been blessed with the most beautiful natural resources in the world. But our most important resource is our young people," says Whitman in the ad.
The campaign is a self-professed effort to reach out to California's Latino voters, according to a Whitman campaign press release. Whitman's outdoor campaign also includes billboards and bus stop advertisements.
"The Latino kids attending public schools in California today will be tomorrow's doctors, engineers, businessmen and teachers," said Whitman. "I want them to have the opportunity to go as far in life as their God-given talent will take them."
The state-wide ad will run on Spanish language stations such as Telemundo, Univision, and Telefutura.
Whitman released two other Spanish language television ads last month on immigration, and the California job market.
Hector Barajas, spokesman for the Whitman campaign told CNN in a statement "We continue our effort to communicate with Spanish speaking voters. The first two ads were in Spanish, this one is a bilingual ad, and it complements our effort to not take any group for granted."
The Brown campaign responded to the ad in a statement saying, "What she doesn't say is that she opposes bilingual education, she favors removing undocumented students from California's colleges and universities and she would deny services to children of undocumented workers – including education."
The latest poll shows California Attorney General and Democratic nominee Jerry Brown ahead with 44 percent to Whitman's 43 percent.
