In a brand new ad released by the Ron Paul 2012 campaign today, Rick Perry’s intimate ties to Al Gore’s presidential campaign are laid bare, as Paul exposes the fact to GOP voters that the current frontrunner is anything but a real conservative.
The 60 second spot, which will air as part of a six-figure ad buy in New Hampshire and Iowa, is entitled simply “Trust”.
The video highlights how Paul was one of only four Republican Congressmen to endorse Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign.
“The establishment called him extreme and unelectable, they said he was the wrong man for the job.” the ad begins.
“After Reagan, Sen. Al Gore ran for president pledging to raise taxes and increase spending,” the ad states. “Rick Perry helped lead Al Gore’s campaign to undo the Reagan revolution.”
“Now America must decide who to trust, Al Gore’s Texas cheerleader or the one who stood with Reagan – Ron Paul.” the spot concludes.
The ad continues the Hollywood blockbuster theme used in Paul’s previous two ads, both of which quickly became viral internet hits earlier this Summer.
The Paul campaign has stated that they hope to place the spot on TV during Wednesday’s GOP presidential debate that airs on MSNBC.
