"Doer" +
:30 ad run starting Oct. 31, 2011 on broadcast and cable in Iowa; run starting Nov. 2 on broadcast and cable in NH.

[Music] Perry: If you're looking for a slick politician or a guy with great teleprompter skills, we already have that and he's destroying our economy.  I'm a doer, not a talker.

In Texas we created 40-percent of the new jobs in the entire country since June of 2009, and we cut a record $15 billion from our state budget.  Now they say we can't do that in Washington.  Well they're wrong, and they need to go.

I’m Rick Perry and I approve of this message.

Notes: From the press release...

"America's number one concern is electing a leader that can get our country working again," said Perry campaign communications director Ray Sullivan. "Gov. Perry is that leader, and this new TV ad underscores his record of action and willingness to make tough decisions to create jobs. Rick Perry is America's jobs governor and the only candidate in this race with a proven record that will get America working again."
