News earlier this week that Karl Rove's PAC group Crossroads GPS had closed a six-figure Spanish-language ad buy in 10 cities didn't take long to reach Democratic leadership. Politico reports the DNC has launched its first ad of the 2012 season -- and, no

Denver, Albuquerque, Reno, Las Vegas, Tampa, Orlando, Miami, and D.C. should all expect to be inundated by both the Republican ad and the Democrat's response.
