LAS VEGAS -- Democratic Sen. Barack Obama has begun airing a Spanish-language ad on radio stations in Nevada, introducing himself as a "son of a foreign father," his presidential campaign said Tuesday.
The ad, the campaign's first media buy in the state, emphasizes Obama's religious affiliation, his call for unity and his father's immigrant background.
