CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Bernie Sanders presidential campaign is launching Spanish-language radio ads in Nevada ahead of his visit this weekend aimed at Latino voters.

Ads set to air in Reno and Las Vegas starting Thursday will tell the story of the Democratic presidential candidate’s immigrant father. They start a few days before Sanders is scheduled to hold a rally Sunday at soccer fields in North Las Vegas, which has a sizeable Hispanic community.

Campaign officials also said they’re planning a major expansion of their efforts in Nevada within the next two weeks. State director Jim Farrell said the campaign plans to open anywhere from seven to 12 offices in coming days, and bring on anywhere from 25-100 staffers.

The Sanders campaign started hiring Nevada staff this fall, months after Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
