(Los Angeles Times) - A new Spanish-language ad in the 21st Congressional District race focuses on Emilio Huerta's family connection to the district, repeatedly mentioning his mother, labor rights icon Dolores Huerta.
The ad refers to Huerta's opponent, Rep. David Valadao (R-Hanford), as Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's "comrade." Valadao announced months ago he would not vote for Trump.
The Central Valley district is 71% Latino and Democrats have targeted it as a potential pick-up opportunity in the fall.
Here is the English translation of voiceover from the ad from House Majority PAC, a political action committee that supports Democratic House candidates:
"From his mother, he learned that every human being has dignity and deserves respect. The son of Dolores Huerta, Emilio today continues the fight for the rights of farmworkers and working families.
"While Donald Trump insults us, and his comrade Republican Congressman Valadao voted to cut funds for our children’s education, Emilio Huerto continues on our side. For education, jobs and healthcare, Emilio Huerta."
