Rick Perry Adds Radio Ads in Iowa, New Hampshire

Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- With a steady stream of television ads in Iowa and New Hampshire, Rick Perry began airing radio ads in the two early primary states on Wednesday.

The 60-second spot promotes the positive comments conservative outlets have issued about the economic tax plan Perry unveiled last week.

Perry, who released two televisions ads in the past 10 days touting his economic record and his ability to be “a doer, not a talker,” pushes his optional 20 percent flat tax rate and suggests that a reform of the establishment will occur by going beyond just “tinkering around the edges.”

“I’m Rick Perry.  Washington’s establishment doesn’t get it.  We’re not going to fix things by tinkering around the edges.  We need a complete overhaul of our tax system and government if we’re going to create jobs.  My optional 20 percent flat tax is so simple you can file it on a postcard.  My plan balances the budget and makes the IRS irrelevant in your life,” Perry says in the ad.

"Respected conservative leaders acknowledge Gov. Perry's economic plan as a positive step in the effort to get our nation back on the path to prosperity," Ray Sullivan, communications director for Perry, said. "This radio ad underscores Gov. Perry's bold proposals and unwavering conservative leadership, which position him as the only candidate in this race with the experience and vision that will revitalize our economy and get Americans working again."
