Ron Paul Ad Calls Rick Perry a Texas Cheerleader for Al Gore

Posted on September 6, 2011

A new Ron Paul ad campaign digs up Ricky Perry's past as a campaigner for Al Gore. Rick Perry was elected to the Texas House of Representatives as a Democrat in 1984. He supported Al Gore in the 1988 Democratic presidential primaries, but he switched parties in 2009.

The ad says, "Al Gore ran for president pledging to raise taxes and increase spending, pushing his liberal values, and Al Gore found a cheerleader in Texas named Rick Perry. Rick Perry helped lead Al Gore's campaign to undo the Reagan revolution"
