Dems focus on Spanish speakers in new ad

The 30-second spot, titled "Siempre Dicen No” ("Always Say No"), was produced by the Democratic National Committee and will begin airing this weekend in Denver and Las Vegas - cities in two key battleground states that Obama won in 2008 and is looking to win again in 2012. Both have large Hispanic populations.
