This new flier from Rick Perry's campaign lays out his plan to fix Washington, D.C.


WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- Thirty-three days and counting till the Iowa caucuses and Texas Gov. Rick Perry is out with new campaign mailers and another television ad in the state.

“It’s time for a Washington overhaul,” the front cover of the trifold brochure reads. A bulldozer is depicted knocking over the Capitol on the front of the mailer Iowans found in their mailboxes today.

The inside pages explain Perry’s three-part plan to overhaul the nation’s capital:

Part 1: End lifetime appointment of federal judges.

Part 2: Create a part-time Congress, cutting pay and time in Washington in half.

Part 3: Overhaul the permanent bureaucracy.

Despite the governor not having been in the first-in-the-nation caucus state since Nov. 19, his campaign released another new television ad to run in the state Thursday.

The 30-second TV spot is entitled “Energy Jobs,” during which Perry says, “I’m an outsider so I’ll step on a few toes if necessary to reopen our oil and gas fields.”

While other GOP presidential campaigns are mailing out lots of campaign literature, Perry has rolled out by for the most TV ads throughout the Hawkeye State.
