Congressman re-airs ad labeling Romney “flip flopper”
March 1, 2012
The Ron Paul 2012 campaign has announced new ad buys in Washington and Vermont ahead of Super Tuesday, and plans to air an ad attacking Mitt Romney, dispelling suggestions that he and Paul are secretly in cahoots.
Paul’s ‘Three of a Kind’ ad is now airing in Washington on the Fox News Channel ahead of the Evergreen State’s Saturday, March 3rd caucus.
The 60 second spot exposes the shortcomings of all three of Paul’s GOP opponents, with a particular focus on Mitt Romney, labeling him “a flip flopper who’s been on all sides, supported TARP bailouts and provided the blueprint for Obamacare.”
The ad, which also labels Newt Gingrich a “serial hypocrite” and Rick Santorum a “counterfeit conservative”, concludes with a reminder of Paul’s ‘Plan to Restore America’, and that he is the only consistent and authentic conservative in the race.
Watch the ad:
In Vermont, Paul’s 30-second ‘Plan’ ad will air through Tuesday, March 6th when the Green Mountain State holds its primary. The spot focuses on Dr. Paul’s balanced budget proposal, and highlights that he is still the only candidate to have drawn up such a plan.
Watch the ad:
“This first leg of our Super Tuesday and pre-Super Tuesday ad buy plan shows our commitment to Washington and Vermont, a dedication to these states and their voters that the other candidates have not shown,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.
“This airtime purchase and forthcoming buys elsewhere advance the delegate-attainment strategy that will help Ron Paul win the Republican nomination as we continue along this exhaustive 50-state campaign, a race we are prepared to stay in and win,” added Mr. Benton.
A significant portion of the mainstream media recently gave credence to a baseless notion pushed by Rick Santorum that Ron Paul had cut a deal with Mitt Romney that involved Paul’s son, Senator Rand Paul, landing a role in a future Romney administration.
Appearing on CNN Tuesday, Paul said those claims were false, telling Wolf Blitzer that Santorum “pulled that out of the air because there’s no truth to it.”
“If he wants to spend his energy doing that, you can’t do anything about it. He dreamt that up.” Paul added.
