No habla espanol? Then you’ll have trouble understanding Senate candidate Marco Rubio’s latest campaign ad, a Spanish-language spot aimed at the state’s immense — and politically active — Hispanic population.

Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants who is fluent in Spanish, speaks directly into the camera for the 30-second ad, which features images of his parents, boyhood photos of himself and video of his wife and children.


Despite the ad, the candidate has expressed his support for making English the official language of the United States.

Here’s an English translation of the ad, according to the Miami Herald:

“This is Marco Rubio. My parents came to this great country and worked very hard. They made many sacrifices so I could live the American dream. For that I will be eternally grateful. Unfortunately that dream is threatened by the actions of some politicians in Washington. I’m Marco Rubio and I approve this message because I will work so that our children and grandchildren have the opportunity to live out their dreams.”
