LAS VEGAS, NV -- As the fight for minority votes escalates, Hillary Clinton's campaign has released a new television ad in Nevada featuring a touching moment between the Democratic presidential candidate and the 10-year-old daughter of undocumented immigrants.

In the 60-second spot, titled "Brave," the young girl tears up while telling Clinton that she is scared her parents will be deported. Clinton hugs the girl and pledges to help her family.

"I'm going to do everything I can so you don't have to be scared," Clinton tells her. "But you're being very brave. And you have to be brave for them, too."

The ad was filmed last weekend during a closed-press portion of a roundtable Clinton held with a group of DREAMers at her campaign's Nevada headquarters in Las Vegas.

According to a campaign aide, the TV spot is hitting the Nevada airwaves today ahead of the state's caucuses on Saturday. It follows a Spanish-language ad the campaign has already been airing across the state.

A new CNN/ORC poll shows Clinton and Bernie Sanders virtually neck and neck in Nevada -- a state with a large Latino population -- and both campaigns are bracing for a tight race.

"It’s gonna be very, very close," Clinton's campaign manager told ABC News on Wednesday. "We’re gonna pull it out, but it’s gonna be very, very close.”
