A new Perry campaign ad stars Texas First Lady Anita Perry. In the "American Story" ad, Mrs. Perry tells the story about meeting her husband in elementary school in Paint Creek.

"We grew up in small towns, raised with Christian values, values we still believe in," Perry says in the ad. "And we know Washington, D.C., could use some of that."

The 30 second ad is airing nationally on cable and statewide in Iowa.
