:30 ad run starting May 25, 2011 in NH.
[Music] Pataki (voiceover): Both

Coinciding with release of this ad, former Gov. George Pataki made a May 24, 2011 visit to NH to promote his group No American Debt; he had breakfast with Republican leaders; and spoke as part of the ECON-101 Town Hall series at New England College in Henniker. Pataki, who had appeared to rule out a presidential run on Sean Hannity' show on April 20, re-opened the door a bit during the visit. (“I’m not running now…we’ll see what happens over the course of the next month.”)
