NEWTON, Iowa (CNN) - Republican Fred Thompson's presidential campaign is set to hit Iowa airwaves with two new television ads Wednesday, aiming to tout the conservative credentials of the actor and former senator from Tennessee.
Both ads are titled "Consistent Conservative" and are set to run nationally on Fox News in addition to local Iowa television stations. In a 60-second version, Thompson highlights his Senate career and anti-abortion record.
"In eight years in the United States Senate, I fought for tax cuts, and for conservative judges," Thompson says in the ad. "And I'm proud to have had a 100 percent pro-life voting record."
A shorter 30-second version of the ad is also set to run.
"Common sense conservative principles," Thompson says in both ads. "If we stick to those basic principles, we'll win next November and the United States of America will be better for it."
Thompson's ads come two days after he said on NBC's Meet the Press he would not support a constitutional amendment banning abortions. Thompson said the issue should be left up to the individual states.
