January 12, 2012

ROCK HILL, SC -- South Carolina is known for dirty tricks, underhanded tactics, and basically anything and everything that people hate about politics (Our pal Peter Hamby has a great take today on how South Carolina's reputation for skulduggery is vastly overstated).

But in the midst of the negative ads that will characterize the primary over the next nine days, one candidate has a secret plan to stand out: Rick Perry is going to stay positive.

Perry's campaign launched a new 60-second ad on Wednesday featuring several veterans speaking up on Perry's behalf. Perry has purchased more than $341,000 in television air time this week, money that will be spent entirely on positive spots, senior Perry advisor Katon Dawson said.
