Study to focus on political advertising and Latinos

Washington (CNN)–– Latinos are being targeted by both campaigns for their vote this November, but are the candidates targeting them in the most effective way?

The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Kantar Media/Campaign Media and Analysis Group launched a project on Tuesday, 'Speak Our Language: Spanish Political Media,' to "seek to ensure that political candidates prioritize Spanish language political campaign advertising in a manner that is proportionate to how critical the Hispanic vote is to so many races across the country during the cycle."

First lady to North Carolinians: Volunteer your way to the convention

Washington (CNN)– In an effort to motivate North Carolina's Obama supporters, the first lady announced a new initiative Wednesday designed to recruit volunteers for the president's campaign by rewarding them with tickets to his Democratic National Convention speech.

President Obama is to deliver his acceptance speech on Thursday, September 6 at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. The home to the National Football League's Carolina Panthers can seat up to 73,778 and will be the largest venue to hold such an event in nearly 50 years, since John F. Kennedy made his acceptance speech at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in 1960.

Christie: Too many 'obsessed with reelection'

Washington (CNN)- Chris Christie said Monday that many times politics comes before people and that can keep government from reaching effective long-term solutions.

"We have too many elected officials who are obsessed with re-election and that they're willing to do anything to keep their job," Christie said. "That's not the kind of person you want in an executive position, or any position for that matter, but certainly in an executive position right now, given the challenges that our country faces."
