(CNN) - Texas Rep. Ron Paul is taking his anti-Newt Gingrich media blitz across more markets.
Not only has Paul's campaign purchased an expanded ad buy in Iowa against his rival GOP presidential opponent, but it's also set to release the same TV ad in New Hampshire, a Paul campaign aide confirmed to CNN.
The 60 second TV spot, titled "Serial Hypocrisy," first launched in Iowa on Wednesday. It includes footage from the news media, coupled with dramatic music, in an attempt to show inconsistencies in Gingrich's record.
The ad spotlights a recent controversy over reports that Gingrich received a paycheck of at least $1.6 million from Freddie Mac while he served as a consultant for the mortgage giant.
Critics went after Gingrich at the time, calling him a lobbyist for the mega-lender. But Gingrich has since denied he took part in any lobbying of any kind.
The video also points to previous comments Gingrich made expressing support for an individual health insurance mandate. While he has repeatedly insisted he opposes a federal mandate, he favors easing into a government-backed system in which every person is covered.
Along with Gingrich, Paul has seen his numbers rise in Iowa over the last month. Gingrich topped the field with 33% of support in the state, according to a new CNN/ORC International Poll. But Paul found himself in close competition with fellow candidate Mitt Romney, coming in with 17% to Romney's 20%.
"We wanted to ensure this ad reached as many voters as possible, to debunk the myth that the Newt we are seeing on the 2012 campaign trail is the conservative he has been touted to be all along," said Paul's national campaign chairman, Jesse Benton, in a statement on Tuesday.
Gingrich's campaign responded to the ad, which first originated online, last week.
"No candidate in the race has achieved more conservative reform of government or spent more time and energy championing the cause of the conservative movement than Newt Gingrich, which is why voters across the country are choosing Newt over Mitt Romney," said campaign spokesman R.C. Hammond in a statement to CNN.
