Not totally related, seeing as it's from 1960, but as far as I can tell, this is the first Spanish-speaking political ad in a US presidential campaign. Would anyone know?

That is really surprising, considering how tiny the Hispanic vote in the US was back then. I guess TX and CA would have had a higher Hispanic population than the national average though.
Because of the electoral college, it actually was damn near vital in this particular election.

Out of many a mud wall cabin
Eyes were watching thru' the night.
Many a manly heart was throbbing
For the coming morning light.
Murmers ran along the valley,
Like the banshee's lonely croon,
And a thousand pikes were flashing
By the Rising of the Moon.

By the Rising of the Moon,
By the Rising of the Moon,
And a thousand pikes were flashing
By the Rising of the Moon
