(CNN) – Rick Perry perpetuates his promise to reform Washington in a new ad set to run in Iowa Tuesday.
The Texas governor uses the 30-second spot to point out the failings of Washington and portray himself as an outside reformer.
"Washington is the capital of political correctness, where double speak reigns and the truth is frowned upon," Perry says in the commercial. "I'm Rick Perry, an outsider who will overhaul Washington and tell you the truth."
He points specifically to members of Congress becoming lobbyists, the U.S. giving aid money to unfriendly countries and the social security system, as evidence of corruption in the nation's capital. Transforming Washington has been a centerpiece of the Texas governor's campaign, which has focused largely on Iowa, the first state to vote on the road to the White House.
His latest spot prefaces a 42-city bus tour in the Hawkeye State that starts Wednesday, intended to drum up support for his presidential bid.
A recent American Research Group survey of likely Iowa caucus goers showed Perry with 13% support in the state, up from 5% in November.
