Ron Paul's Campaign Announces Big Ad Buy



Ron Paul has a plan -- and some money to try to implement it:
Ron Paul's campaign announced Thursday the purchase of a multi-million dollar ad blitz in early primary states, an indication that the Texas congressman is ready to flex his sizable fundraising edge in an effort to move into the top tier of the Republican race.

Paul's buy features two ads - the first, titled 'Plan', outlines the candidate's recently released economic plan, which included a 15 percent cut to the defense budget and an end to all foreign aid, amongst $1 trillion in overall cuts that included the elimination of five cabinet-level agencies.

“No other Republican candidate’s economic plan matches that of Dr. Paul’s, so in turn we thought it only right to follow with a worthy campaign advertising effort,” said Paul campaign chairman Jesse Benton.

The ads are expected to air in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina.
Fury posted the second ad in the set ("Consistent") the other day. I think that the first one (above) is exceedingly effective.

That said, as far as I'm concerned, Ron Paul needs to stick with this type of advertising and avoid shifting to court social conservatives (ahem). Paul, to me, has always been THE candidate of fiscal discipline. As long as he keeps that up, I think that his campaign will continue to garner more and more attention -- particularly from independents.
