Texas Gov. Rick Perry kicked off his multi-million-dollar ad campaign with a spot in Iowa featuring the Republican candidate promising to create 2.5 million new jobs if he is elected president.

The ad, dubbed “Creating Jobs,” is set to debut Wednesday in Iowa and is a key part of an effort to rescue Perry’s campaign from its single-digit free fall.

It is a brief, positive spot focusing on Perry’s economic plan, although it doesn’t mention the centerpiece of his proposal, a 20-percent flat tax to replace the system of graduated income tax rates. Perry says he’ll start an economic recovery  “by opening American oil and gas fields” and by cutting Obama-era red tape on business.
