Both President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney are vying for the Latino vote. The President released a new ad in Spanish and for the first time the ad features his the first lady.
"So much is at stake, comprehensive immigration reform, making sure health care is not repealed, education, a making sure every young person has access to good schools and I could go on and on and on that's why the vote is critical, " said Michele Obama.
The President also tells the Des Moines Register that in a second term he would pass immigration reform.
"I'm confident we'll get done next year is immigration reform," Obama said in the transcript of the interview posted online by the paper. "And since this is off the record, I will just be very blunt. Should I win a second term, a big reason I will win a second term is because the Republican nominee and the Republican Party have so alienated the fastest-growing demographic group in the country, the Latino community."
