Notes: The "chorus" of voices approach, very professionally done.  According to the press release:

The ad features prominent Granite State surrogates such as political activists and leaders including state Sens. Andy Sanborn (R-Henniker) and Ray White (R-Bedford), both of whom have endorsed Ron Paul for the presidency.
A key feature of the ad is New Hampshire politicians and luminaries condemning the outsize growth of the federal government – calling is “overtaxing” and “overspending” – alongside declarations that the upcoming election is about trust.  The ad then presents Ron Paul as an honest and consistent candidate, and the sole alternative to flip-floppers responsible for the costly mistakes of the past.  The ad also showcases, in the words of its subjects, the strengths of Ron Paul’s ‘Plan to Restore America.’
“Ron Paul is surging in New Hampshire and is in it to win it.  We have a first-class organization and tremendous support from a state where his message of personal and economic liberty resonates well.  This ad will serve as the closing argument for why Ron Paul is the only authentic conservative in this race, and the only one capable of  bringing authentic change to Washington,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.
