NEW YORK (AP) -- President Barack Obama's re-election campaign is launching a series of Spanish-language television ads in three battleground states.

Meanwhile, a Republican official said Tuesday that Mitt Romney is "still deciding" his position on immigration, then took back that statement.

Taken together, the ads and the comment underscored Obama's advantages and Romney's challenge in wooing the nation's fastest-growing ethnic group, Democratic-leaning Hispanics.

The Obama campaign ads promote the president's federal health care overhaul, and are running in Florida, Nevada and Colorado.
Polling shows that Obama has a wide lead over Romney among Hispanics.

Romney has taken hardline positions on immigration issues but has signaled that he'll consider policies that may not line up with the opinions he expressed during the primary.

    I agree, I think they do make good targets.
