The Bell campaign said they were unconcerned about the new Perry ad as it points to Bell as the anti-Perry.
“We hope he runs more ads identifying us as the candidate he’s scared of,” Bell’s campaign manager Jason Stanford said. “Chris Bell is the anti-Perry, and with two-thirds of voters itching to fire Rick Perry, that’s a great position to be in.”
The Bell campaign also released a new radio ad of their own this week, featuring former President Bill Clinton.
In the ad, Clinton says Perry has had his chance as governor.
“We need a positive change,” Clinton said. “So on election day, be a good citizen, exercise your right to vote and vote for Democrat Chris Bell for governor.”
