Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann are tearing into each other.
Rick Perry's GOP presidential campaign blasted as "blatantly false" a new ad put up in South Carolina by a pro-Michele Bachmann "superPAC," in a press release Thursday.
The Texas governor's campaign said the ad misrepresents the governor's fiscally conservative record in his state. Veteran political operative Bob Harris is behind the 30-second spot through "Keep Conservatives United," the so-called "super PAC" he founded in July in support of (but independent from) Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann's run for the GOP nomination.
The commercial, much like the group's first web video, takes aim at Perry over his Lone Star state record.
"Rick Perry's spending more money than the state takes in, covering his deficits with record borrowing. And he's supposed to be the tea party guy?" the spot says. "There is an honest conservative, and she's not Rick Perry."
