Perry Launches Iowa TV Campaign

GOP presidential contender makes ad purchase worth $174,000, source says.

The first ads of Rick Perry's presidential campaign will air on both broadcast and cable TV across Iowa, an ad purchase worth $174,000, according to a Republican source who tracks ad buys. 
The ads, first reported Monday by Politico, will air on broadcast TV in the Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and Sioux City markets, according to the source. The total broadcast buy is $105,000. In addition, the campaign bought ads to run on cable statewide, worth about $69,000.
The Sioux City and Cedar buys are worth 750 media points, the one in Des Moines 775 points. 
The TV ads are the opening salvo for Perry's campaign, which is depending on an aggressive media campaign to claw back into the Republican primary after slipping precipitously in the polls. Despite Perry's struggles of late, he still boasts the best financial resources of any presidential candidate except for front-runner Mitt Romney, raising $17 million during the third quarter alone.
