Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign Committee

"Plan" +
:30 ad released Oct. 19, 2011, run in IA, NH, SC and NV.

[Music] Male Announcer: Ron Paul—a visionary who predicted the financial crisis; a leader with a plan to solve it.

The Paul Plan? 

Balance the budget.  Cut a trillion dollars year one.  Eliminate five federal bureaucracies.  End the foreign wars and nation-building.  Rein in the Federal Reserve.  Pay down the debt.  Cut taxes to create jobs.

Ron Paul—a plan to restore America now.

Paul (voiceover): I’m Ron Paul and I approve this message.

Notes: A solid, straightforward issue ad.  According to the Oct. 20 press release:

The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign announced today the release of two new broadcast campaign ads that capitalize on the aggressive posture Dr. Paul displayed during his Las Vegas, Nevada “Plan to Restore America” launch.  
The 30-second spot “Plan” clearly explains Paul’s balanced budget plan to voters, and the 60-second spot “Consistent” compares his distinguished record of advocating conservative principles with the records of his establishment opponents Herman Cain, Mitt Romney and Rick Perry. 
“Plan” and “Consistent” are part of a two week, multi-million dollar blitz in the key early states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada.  The campaign will also run radio versions of these spots, and complement the broadcast push with substantial voter outreach on the same topics.
“The absolutely positive reception of Ron Paul’s ‘Plan to Restore America’ means we’re obligated to meet an even higher standard of outreach and discussion,” said Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton, a “Plan to Restore America” co-author.
“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 Mr. Benton.
