The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign has begun running its “Big Dog” TV ad in the key early voting states of Nevada and Minnesota targeting those caucuses on 2/4 and 2/7, respectively.
The ad buy is substantial and part of the campaign’s delegate strategy to secure the Republican nomination for the presidency. The effort uses broadcast and cable television in both states.
This is the fourth time the campaign has purchased ads in Nevada, and the first time it has done so in Minnesota. For Nevada, the campaign announced ad buys for ‘Secure,’ ‘Life,’ and the combined ‘Plan’ and ‘Consistent’ buy on 10/7, 10/14, and 10/20, respectively.
The 30-second spot ‘Big Dog’ contrasts establishment Republican candidates unwilling to make difficult choices on spending cuts and debt reduction with the sole candidate whose bite on such matters equals his bark: Ron Paul.
The ad informs viewers about major provisions of Ron Paul’s “Plan to Restore America” including his proposals to cut $1 trillion from the federal budget in year one, balance the federal budget in year three, and eliminate the Departments of Commerce, Education, Energy, Housing and Urban Development, and Interior.
