A GOP advocacy group with ties to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is targeting six vulnerable Republican congressional districts in a bilingual tax reform ad campaign launched on Thursday.

The five-week radio campaign is part of the American Action Network’s pledge to spend $5 million during the House August recess.

The ads will target the Latino-heavy districts of Republican Reps. Martha McSally (Ariz.), Jeff Denham (Calif.), Steve Knight (Calif.), David Valadao (Calif.), Carlos Curbelo (Fla.) and Will Hurd (Texas).

{mosads}In the ad, a narrator tells listeners that the tax code is hurting working families and ties complicated small-business taxation to job loss to China.

“We want this message to reach all communities, in every corner of the country. Hispanic middle-class families have seen less opportunity and stagnant wages for too long,” said Corry Bliss, American Action Network’s executive director. “Their voice in this debate is critical, we urge them to contact their representative and ask for a tax code that prioritizes more jobs and higher wages for hard-working families.”

The ad asks listeners to keep asking their representative “to keep fighting for real tax cuts.”

The ads will run in English and Spanish.
