Ron Paul: A Veteran’s Best Friend





Today, the Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign released its latest television ad . The 60-second spot entitled ‘A Veteran’s Best Friend’ highlights Paul’s military service and unrivaled commitment to veterans.

“Dr. Paul has a long record in Congress as a strong advocate for veterans and issues important to them, particularly in making sure that they receive recognition for the sacrifices they’ve made in service to our country,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.

The ad is the first in what will be a $1 million television push over the next few weeks. It is scheduled to air nationally on the FOX News Channel during debate coverage and run heavily in New Hampshire, Iowa, Nevada, and South Carolina on broadcast and cable. At this stage in the primary election cycle few other campaigns have the ability to make an ad push of this scale, putting the Paul campaign in elite company.

Regarding the campaign’s ad push Benton went on to say:

“Our campaign is seeing growing momentum now and is doing this ad blitz to cement ourselves in the top tier. We’ve seen Dr. Paul’s poll numbers steadily increase, with strong showings in recent New Hampshire and Iowa polls, as well as strong head-to-head showings versus President Obama.”

As a presidential candidate, Congressman Paul has garnered more donations from active-duty military than all of the other Republican presidential candidates combined, and more than President Obama as well. Paul’s consistent adherence to Constitutional principles regarding American foreign policy, and his calls to bring the troops home in order to defend the country as opposed to spending trillions policing and nation-building in foreign lands has gained him wide support among veterans and active military alike.

  2. Who is putting together these commercials? They are THE SHIT! Love these. They are definitely helping the campaign. Passionate, strong messages that appeal to conservative voters. Anyone have the full story here? It sounds as if Ron went through trouble to get the medals.

  9. Kennedy was one of the only Presidents who was for the people, and went against the interests of the lobbyists. And for that he was shot.

    When Ron Paul gets to the White House, he better hire security.

  10. I heard that Ron Paul's Campaign is planning to send 1 million dollars to run this ad. What a waste of money if you ask me. It really doesn't send a strong message as to what Ron Paul stands for or what is platform is.
    Here is the ad I would have chosen:

  17. Interesting how adding comments is disabled on Rick Perry's latest campaign [scare] video. Shows you what kind of democracy the other candidates value when they are afraid of free speech.
