New York City mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa is preparing to launch Spanish campaign ads. The $250,000 ads, both airing on cable and broadcast beginning on Tuesday, seeks to target Sliwa’s Latino demographic.

“We believe that the Latino vote is going to be extremely important in this election. It’s growing larger and larger than ever before and Curtis has a following among folks of Spanish speaking heritage,” campaign senior advisor Rob Cole said in a statement.

This comes as the Republican nominee recently received public matching funds from the city in the amount of $2.6 million. Now, Sliwa has challenged Democrat nominee Eric Adams to a September debate.

Sliwa took to Twitter to say, “now, I am challenging Eric Adams to a September debate. Let’s give the voters what they deserve: real debate about our city’s future!”
