Hours after the first Democratic debate of Hillary Clinton's campaign, a super PAC unveiled a Spanish-language digital ad in support of the former secretary of state's presidential bid.

"Mi Hija," which translates to "My Daughter," is a five-figure purchase by Priorities USA, The New York Times reported. The ad, which will run statewide in Nevada, showcases a single mother talking about how she raised a child on her own, calling her daughter "my sun, my light."

Watch the "Mi Hija" campaign below.

"I want my daughter to grow up knowing that everything she sets her mind to she will achieve," the unnamed mother in the clip said in Spanish while English subtitles appeared below, Fox News Latino reported. "I think Hillary Clinton is a smart woman, she is a brave woman. As a mother, she knows how hard it is to go to work and raise a child. As a woman she would support us."

The two-hour Democratic Debate moderated by CNN anchor Anderson Cooper saw Clinton and her fellow presidential candidates -- Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, and Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee -- all expressing their support for comprehensive immigration reform, which has become the forefront of the 2016 campaign trail, according to a separate report from Fox News Latino.

Clinton said that she would provide deportation relief to more immigrants than what is currently being covered in President Barack Obama's executive order, the news outlet wrote. Clinton has hired DREAMer leaders who are former undocumented immigrants to help boost her campaign reach to Latinos.

However, the debate only made few mentions about Latinos and immigration, Fox News Latino noted.

Following the Democratic Debate, Clinton will next attend a Q&A event with the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in San Antonio, Texas on Thursday, Oct. 15. The event will allow the Democratic presidential frontrunner to explain her stance on the country's immigration system, The Hill wrote.

"Since the first day of her announcement, Secretary Clinton's team has continued actively engaging our business owners throughout the country by listening to their stories, and sharing her vision for broad-based prosperity where every American has the chance to get ahead and stay ahead," USHCC Communications Director Ammar Campa-Najjar said in a statement issued to Politico.

Earlier this month, it was reported that movie star Salma Hayek is endorsing Clinton's "Latinos for Hillary" campaign. Other famous personalities who expressed their support for the presidential hopeful are Puerto Rican singer Marc Anthony, actress America Ferrera, liberal hero Wendy Davis, and political strategist Lorena Chambers.
