GrowPAC, a group founded by former New York Senate candidate David Malpass, will air radio ads in Iowa urging people to write Perry’s name onto the Ames straw poll ballot.
“President Obama is making things worse. We need a president who will stop this,” Malpass says in the spot. “Iowa has a chance to turn things around for America. At the Ames Straw Poll write in Rick Perry, he can win and make America secure again. I worked for Ronald Reagan and I know how countries create growth and jobs. Let’s give Rick Perry a chance.”
The 60-second ads will air in stations in the markets surrounding Ames, officials said.
