Hutchison, Perry Air TV Ads In Texas

Texas Gov. Rick Perry‘s first television ad of his 2010 re-election campaign touts his record on fiscal matters and subtly links Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison to “Washington politics.”

Perry’s ad, released Thursday, says that he cut taxes, created jobs and balanced the budget in Texas, where Perry is seeking a third full term but faces serious intraparty competition from Hutchison, a senator since 1993.

Though the governor’s ad doesn’t specifically mention Hutchison, Perry’s chief opponent in the March 2010 primary, it does briefly display a picture of Hutchison, presumably at a press conference in the nation’s capital, as a narrator says the words, “While Washington gives us politics.”
