EXETER, N.H. (AP) — Republican presidential contender Rick Perry is launching his first television ads in New Hampshire this week.
Campaign spokesman Paul Young confirms the new television buy, which begins running on cable stations and the local network WMUR Wednesday. It's the same ad that's already running in Iowa.
The 30-second spot features a relaxed Perry saying that he's a "doer," not a "talker."
The Texas governor is struggling to win over voters in New Hampshire and elsewhere. He's trying to overcome weak debate performances and is betting the television commercials will help redefine his image. And he has the money to run more.
Perry becomes only the second candidate on New Hampshire airwaves after Texas Congressman Ron Paul.
New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation Republican presidential primary is to take place roughly in two months.
