(CNN) – Hispanic voters will be hearing President Barack Obama's voice urging them to vote in the final days leading up to the November 2nd election, thanks to new television and radio ads paid for by the Democratic National Committee.
The ads, which will air nationally on the Spanish media network Univision, are part of a $1 million campaign by the DNC to reach out to Hispanic voters.
"Help me defend what we started," the president says in the commercial, asking voters to support Democrats on Election Day.
While Obama speaks in English, the narrator speaks in Spanish.
The ads also feature a clip of Obama during a September 28th speech. "We can't let this country fall backwards because the rest of us didn't care enough to fight," Obama says in the clip.
A narrator touts the Obama administration’s policies and tells listeners "the Republicans want to return to the past." The narrator also spotlights issues including the economy, funding for higher education and health care reform.
"We're reaching out to the Hispanic community because we believe that by working together we can ensure Democratic victories this fall, and continue the tradition of successful Democratic leadership that is devoted to opening up new opportunities for Hispanic Americans and hard-working Americans of all backgrounds," DNC Chairman Tim Kaine said in a statement.
The Republican National Committee has not yet responded to CNN's request for comment.
About 6.5 million Hispanic voters will likely cast their ballots this year, according to the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, which is nearly 1 million more than in the last midterm elections in 2006.
