Angle seeks support from Hispanics

Washington (CNN) – Republican Senate nominee Sharron Angle is making a final push in the last two months before the Election Day to attract more Hispanic voters to the polls.

Angle has yet to release a Spanish language campaign ad, but a campaign spokesperson tells CNN the first commercial is on its way.

"We will be airing Spanish-language ads and continuing our grassroots outreach to the Hispanic community," Angle communications director Jarrod Agen said.

"The final two months of the campaign are when most people are paying attention to the race and focusing in on who they'll vote for," Agen added.

Agen would not comment on when the ads will be released, or where they will run.

Angle faces incumbent Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, this November. The most recent poll, conducted in August by the Las Vegas-Review Journal, shows Reid leading over Angle 46 – 44 percent.

The Reid campaign issued a statement reacting to Angle's outreach effort.

"Sen. Reid has a long legislative record on issues important to the Hispanic community. He works every day to create jobs, strengthen our classrooms, and ensure that every Nevadan has an opportunity to make it in America," said Reid campaign spokesman Jose Dante Parra. "Sharron Angle, in what can only be described as an act of desperation, has now decided that in order to win she needs a group she has used as a punching bag for so long."

    Look like Nevada conservatives....Angle is edging her way toward being a proponent of "immigration reform"...or she's just lying again.

    Any hispanic person that votes for this nutcase deserves what they get, once she gets in the senate she will be bashing them like the rest of them.

    If 'spanics are too lazy or dumb to learn English, which is the overwhelmingly dominant tongue of the U.S., and worldwide commerce and diplomacy, they can move back to whatever Third World ghetto they came from. Indeed, refusal to learn English creates their own ghetto, a community cut off from the rest of the world which is distinctly second-class.
