New Ad! Ron Paul is The OneSubmitted by complexphenom on Wed, 08/17/2011 - 06:37
EXCLUSIVE – RON PAUL’S NEW AD CALLS HIM “THE ONE”: Ron Paul is going on the air today in Iowa and New Hampshire with a commercial describing his three top Republican opponents -- Rick Perry, Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann -- as "smooth-talking" career politicians. Paul's ad portrays him as the only true outsider in the race, citing his record of voting down tax hikes and debt ceiling increases. And it lumps Perry, Romney and Bachmann in the same category as President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, showing pictures of all six politicians, sometimes side by side, and contrasting them with Paul. The 60-second spot, produced by GOP ad man Jon Downs, is running with six figures behind it in New Hampshire and what the campaign calls a "substantial" sum in Iowa. It's Paul's second major broadcast buy of the campaign, and it comes after his strong second place showing last weekend at the Ames straw poll.
