Super PAC Runs Ad for Perry in Iowa

A "super PAC" has purchased a statewide ad buy for $40,000 that seeks to bolster Texas Gov. Rick Perry's (R) image in the early caucus state before the Ames straw poll on August 13, reports Politico. The super PAC is "rumored to have the backing of wealthy Texas Republicans who have long supported Perry" and is linked to similar groups in important primary states like South Carolina and Florida.
 
Why the small ad buy? "The goal of the Iowa ad is to 'help introduce Iowa voters to Rick Perry' and 'generate buzz' ahead of the straw poll, said the source familiar with Jobs for Iowa... the source said that, depending on what Perry does, the Jobs groups 'plan to release additional TV spots with significant ad buys...after Labor Day.'"
