Rick Perry to Launch Major Ad Buy in Iowa

Alex Wong/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- In an attempt to boost his campaign in the Hawkeye State, Texas Gov. Rick Perry is set to launch a major ad buy in Iowa soon, but the campaign remains tight-lipped about the exact timing.

A source familiar with the ad buy tells ABC News the Perry campaign is pouring approximately $175,000 into broadcast and cable ads in Iowa for the week of Oct. 25 to Oct. 31.  The bulk of the ad buy -- approximately $100,000 -- will be in broadcast in Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, and Sioux City.  The remaining $75,000 will go to ads on statewide cable, according to the source.

However, aides to the Perry campaign denied the first ads will start Tuesday, and a spokesman for Perry declined to comment further on the ad buy, saying, “We do not discuss internal strategy.”

Whenever they run, these will be Perry’s first television ads of the cycle.  The Perry campaign has produced a number of web videos since entering the race.
