WASHINGTON (CNN) - After raising a surprising $5 million for his presidential bid, Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, launched his first television campaign ads in New Hampshire Monday.
One of the ads, "Catching On," shows interviews with New Hampshire voters praising Paul and saying that he would lower taxes and remove troops from Iraq immediately. "He's catching on, I'm telling you," a man says at the end of the commercial.
In the second ad, "Troops and Deficit," Paul stands in front of a blown up copy of the Constitution. "Once we stop wasting trillions overseas, we can cut the budget and still help people who need it," Paul says, addressing the camera.
Paul's campaign said he will spend $1.1 million on the commercials. They will both run on a rotation in New Hampshire.
