CFIF LAUNCHES AD CAMPAIGN AGAINST SENATOR MARY LANDRIEU FOR FLIP-FLOP ON MIGUEL ESTRADA

The Center has launched a Spanish radio ad campaign in Louisiana to insist that Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) keep her campaign promise to her Honduran constituents.

The 30-second Spanish-spoken ad demands that Senator Landrieu keep true to her word of supporting D.C. Circuit Court nominee Miguel Estrada. Part of the script translates as follows:

"During Senator Mary Landrieu's re-election campaign, she ran ads telling Honduran voters that she supported the judicial nomination of Miguel Estrada — the Honduran immigrant slated to become the first Hispanic ever on the second most important court in the country.

Now Senator Landrieu has fought to deny Miguel Estrada a vote on his nomination.

Call Mary Landrieu TODAY at (202) 224-5824! Ask her to fulfill her campaign promise on Miguel Estrada."

The ad concludes with "Paid for by: Center for Individual Freedom."

"During her 2002 re-election campaign, Senator Landrieu stated in a Spanish-spoken ad campaign that she 'supported the candidacy of the Honduran Miguel Estrada for the Federal Court of Appeals, and has worked closely with the Hispanic Community.' She clearly has lied to her constituents for the ultimate political gain -- re-election," according to Jeffrey Mazzella, Senior Vice President of CFIF.
