Univision, Facebook Allow Romney And Obama To Address Hispanic U.S. Voters

As previously announced, Facebook and Spanish-language TV network Univision will present forums featuring President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney. The candidates will discuss issues facing America’s Hispanic population. The discussions — to be held Wednesday and Thursday — will be broadcast live on Univision and Univision’s Facebook page.

The discussion featuring Romney will air on TV and Facebook at 6:20 p.m. ET Wednesday. Obama will take to the airwaves and social network at 2:10 p.m. ET Thursday.

In a promotional video, moderator and Univision Anchor Maria Elena Salinas explained what the presidential candidates will discuss:

We will talk about a series of issues that affect and interest the Latino community: immigration, jobs, health care, among others.

Univision also offered a behind-the-scenes look at the preparation behind the forums in a video posted to the U.S. Politics on Facebook page. Univision’s Facebook page, in addition to hosting a live stream of both discussions, will be the center for discussion.
