Romney tries to woo Hispanic community with education pitch

Mitt Romney Friday continued his push for the Hispanic vote, releasing another Spanish language ad. This one deals with education.

Polls have shown the Republican presidential candidate running well behind President Barack Obama among Hispanics, a crucial bloc in some key swing states.

The new ad recalls Obama's pledge four years ago to "make a historic commitment to education.”

Then the ad offers data it suggests demonstrate how that commitment fell short, saying most people do not think college is affordable, citing a May Pew Research Center analysis.

The ad recalls how in 2008 Obama said, "I want you to hold me accountable.” And it concludes, "When it comes to education, Obama and the Democrats have failed our kids.”
