Durham, New Hampshire (CNN) – Texas Gov. Rick Perry's first television ad in New Hampshire hits the airwaves Wednesday, CNN has learned.
The ad, "I'm a Doer not a Talker," began running in Iowa this week. It features Perry speaking straight into the camera about his jobs record in Texas.
"If you're looking for a slick politician or a guy with great teleprompter skills, we already have that, and he's destroying our economy," Perry says. "I'm a doer, not a talker."
The ad will run on cable and on New Hampshire news station WMUR, said Perry senior adviser Paul Young. He called it "a significant buy" but would not discuss specific figures.
Radio ads will also run statewide.
The ad confronts head-on Perry's struggles at a series of GOP debates, which analysts say have hurt his poll numbers. A CNN/Time/ORC poll from last week put Perry's support in New Hampshire at 4%.
He was in the state Friday to file his paperwork for candidacy in the state's primary and to speak to a conservative group in the state.
