Paul camp hits Santorum in new TV ad

 

The latest sign of the emerging Mitt Romney/Ron Paul bro-mance: The Paul campaign is airing a new TV ad in Michigan that hits Rick Santorum on the very points that the Romney camp has been raising (voted to raise the debt ceiling, increase spending).

Do note that this Paul ad is being released BEFORE Paul even starts campaigning in Michigan (he'll do so in the coming days) and as his team focuses more on the upcoming caucus contests (like Idaho and North Dakota) instead of the Arizona and Michigan contests, which don't appear to factor into the Paul campaign's delegate plans.

After all, Arizona is winner take all, and Michigan is winner take all per congressional district.

Per NBC's Anthony Terrell, the ad will also air in the upcoming Super Tuesday states.

The transcript:
Is this dude serious?
Fiscal conservative, really?
Santorum voted to raise the debt ceiling 5 times
Doubled the size of the Department of Education
Then supported the biggest entitlement expansion since the ‘60’s.
Not groovy.
Santorum voted to send billions of our tax dollars to dictators in North Korea and Egypt.
And even hooked Planned Parenthood up with a few million bucks.
Rick Santorum a fiscal conservative?
Fake.
