Jackie Kennedy stars in Spanish language campaign ad


In the 1960 presidential election, Jackie Kennedy joined in the Kennedy campaign's effort to attract Spanish-speaking voters with an ad she filmed in Spanish.

"In these times of danger when world peace is threatened by communism, it is necessary to have in the White House a leader who is capable of guiding our destiny with a firm hand," Mrs Kennedy says in Spanish.

"For the future of our children, and to achieve a world where true peace exists, vote for the Democratic Party on November 8. Long Live Kennedy!"
