Press release from the Dr. Richard Carmona for U.S. Senate campaign:

Carmona for Arizona airs first Spanish TV ad
“El Camino” introduces Carmona to Spanish-speaking audience

The Carmona for Arizona campaign will start running its first Spanish-language ad Tuesday. The thirty-second spot will air statewide and highlights Dr. Richard Carmona's unique story — how education and opportunity let him go from growing up as a poor kid to becoming Surgeon General of the United States.

Carmona dropped out of high school, but found new opportunity in the Army — where he earned his GED while training to become a Special Forces soldier. Carmona got into community college through an open enrollment program for veterans and went to college and medical school on the GI Bill. Carmona is running to make sure every kid today gets that same shot at the American Dream.

The campaign is also launching a companion Spanish-language radio ad, which will air statewide.
