Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul takes a shot at rival Rick Perry in a new TV ad. The Texas representative’s campaign spent a six-figure sum on the 60-second spot that rips the Texas governor for supporting the 1988 presidential campaign of then-Democratic Tennessee Sen. Al Gore, Politico reports.

Perry was a Democrat at the time.

Paul’s ad notes that he supported former President Ronald Reagan from the get-go, saying he was one of only four congressmen to initially back Regan.

“After Reagan, Sen. Al Gore ran for president, pledging to raise taxes and increase spending, pushing his liberal values,” the ad states. “And Al Gore found a cheerleader in Texas named Rick Perry. Rick Perry helped lead Al Gore's campaign to undo the Reagan revolution. America must decide who to trust: Al Gore’s Texas cheerleader or the one who stood with Reagan.”

Watch the ad below.
