Perry kicks off race with radio ad blitz | News for Denton, Texas | Texas/Southwest: "Gov. Rick Perry kicked off the political season Wednesday by airing a statewide radio commercial touting his education funding plan.

The 60-second ad asks people to call their lawmakers and urge them to support the Perry Plan, which he unveiled Tuesday to a less than enthusiastic reception from legislators who are busy honing their own proposals.

House Speaker Tom Craddick said the governor was trotting out a list of ideas already discussed by lawmakers, but Mr. Perry described his plan as a middle ground between the House and Senate. Lawmakers ended the regular session last month in a stalemate over which chamber's version of education finance should be passed."
