The Obama Campaign today announced the airing of a new Spanish language radio advertisement which will run in San Antonio, Harlingen, Corpus Christi, Laredo, Dallas, Houston, Austin, and El Paso.  The ad highlights Barack Obama's decision to pass up a high-paying job after graduating from college and work in the community to help families hurt by plant closings.  It discusses his ability to bring the country together, stand up to the special interests in Washington, DC and build a better future for families across the country.

The Obama Campaign also announced the endorsement of Texas State Representative Trey Martinez Fischer of San Antonio.

"Senator Obama is demonstrating his commitment to reaching out to the Hispanic community in Texas and earning their support in the March 4th primary," State Representative Trey Martinez Fischer said.  "Barack Obama shares our story and shares our passion for a new America.  Obama is committed to bringing real change to a struggling economy, a runaway health care system and reforming education.  These are the real kitchen table issues Hispanic families across America care deeply about.  Obama is the only candidate who can unite our country and renew America's promise.  It's the kind of leadership that Hispanic families are looking for in our next president."
