VIDEO: Ron Paul $1m ‘veteran’ ad
The Texas Congressman has a new 60-second ad spot that highlights not only Ron Paul‘s own background in the military, but features veterans discussing the ways that Paul has honored them.
The ad is embedded below:
The Paul campaign has said the full ad time buy is in excess of $1 million. The spot will run nationally Thursday, prior to the GOP debate set to take place in Orlando, Fla. Afterward, it will run in the four early states — Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina — on both regular and cable stations.
After 10 days of airtime, the campaign intends to offer a new message, and continue in that way for a total of four weeks. This offering marks the fourth time during the 2012 campaign season that Paul has reached out to Iowa caucus-goers by paid television advertisement.
Jesse Benton, Paul’s national campaign chairman, notes that his candidate has garnered more donations from active-duty military than all the other GOP presidential candidates combined, and more than President Barack Obama as well. Benton believes this is due to Paul’s continued calls to bring the troops home and his overall stance on foreign policy.
