In Appeal To Latinas, Obama Campaign Touts Anniversary Of Sotomayor Appointment

In honor of the third anniversary of President Barack Obama naming Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, the Obama campaign unveiled over the weekend a web video honoring the Bronx native, and by extension, honoring the president for appointing her.

The three-minute video features Mr. Obama making the announcement, followed mostly young Latin women speaking emotionally about how much the appointment meant to them.

Polls show Mr. Obama leading Republican rival Mitt Romney by as much as 35 points among Latino voters, but I can’t recall a sitting president making such an explicit campaign appeal over a Supreme Court appointment before, a testament to how much Ms. Sotomayor means to a key demographic group.
