The latest web ad from Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney targets Hispanic voters, and argues that President Obama's policies are hurting these voters:

"The Obama campaign recently released a Spanish-language web ad asserting that 'we're on the right path,'" the Romney campaign says with the release of this ad. "Mitt Romney disagrees and believes that rising unemployment and more Hispanics in poverty is not the 'right path' for our country. America can do better and, with Mitt Romney as president, we will."
