New Perry Web Video Highlights Gaining “Momentum”
In a new video released only on the web, Rick Perry's campaign highlights his debate performance from Saturday as an indicator that he is gaining "momentum."
The nearly two minute video, titled "Momentum," strings together clips of some of Perry's strongest moments from the ABC News debate, including a moment where he hits opponents Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich for the health care bill individual mandate, while also featuring commentary by pundits and journalists lauding his performance.
"I think he's having something of a resurgence in Iowa," Fox News' Chris Wallace says as images of horses galloping through a field appears across the screen before switching to video of Perry sitting in front of a bale of hay on the bed of a truck.
Text appears across the screen citing Tim Albrecht, director of communications for Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, who said during ABC News' debate coverage that Perry had his "strongest performance yet."
But while the web spot features some of Perry's more eloquent moments, the initial video has a small glitch of its own. Around the 0:28 second mark, texts appears across the screen that misspells the word "Strengthen.
"Poll: Gingrich Fails, Perry Stengthens in Iowa," the text reads, quoting a Washington Examiner headline from Monday.
The Perry campaign says they are fixing the typo.
