The use of Spanish in presidential elections in the United States has increased greatly in the past decades. Since Jackie Kennedy’s starring role in the first Spanish political advertisement in 1960, different candidates and political parties have continued to incorporate this language in their strategies to galvanize Hispanic voters, who are growing in number and influence. This session will review the evolution in the use of Spanish in politics from 1960 to the current 2020 election.
