The Ron Paul 2012 presidential campaign is targeting fellow Texan Gov. Rick Perry in a new 60-second ad.
It emphasizes Paul’s longtime conservative credentials and early support of Ronald Reagan, while pointing out Perry’s former chairmanship of Al Gore’s presidential campaign.
The ad also notes the similarities between the candidacies of Paul and Reagan, with both being attacked by the political establishment as “too extreme” and questioning their electability. Reagan, like Paul, was dismissed by the establishment elites. Congressman Paul was one of only four Congressmen to endorse Ronald Reagan against incumbent Gerald Ford and lead the Texas delegation for Reagan to the 1976 Republican National Convention.
The ad will appear in both broadcast and web format, with substantial air-time buys in New Hampshire and Iowa. The spot will also be sent to multiple conservative and TEA Party email lists and appear in banner ads across the internet.
