I just saw the first Perry TV spot, “Open for Business.” He goes postive. It opens with a shot of the Lone Star Flag against a sunrise. Perry announces that Texas has created more than 850,000 jobs, more than any other state; it has cut taxes for small business; it’s home to more Fortune 500 companies than any other state. The scenes flash by: a hardware store, a diner, people seated at computers, a grocery, a barber shop. It’s a typical Perry spot. High-class graphics and Perry’s smile.
