A day after Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst released a new TV ad featuring Gov. Rick Perry, his opponents Tom Leppert and Ted Cruz are both out with new ads.

Leppert’s ad is a sequel to the ‘Empty Suits’ ad that’s been airing since last month. The follow up spot has Leppert touting his credentials as a ‘conservative businessman,’ while portraying Dewhurst, Cruz and President Obama as ’empty suits’, playing football behind him.

The Cruz campaign also released a new television ad it’s calling ‘Fighter.’ The ad focuses on Cruz’s father, who was born in Cuba and was ‘tortured and imprisoned by a Cuban dictator’ before the ‘escaped to America.’ It also touts Cruz’s fight with the United Nations "defending Texas’ right to execute an illegal alien for murdering two teenage girls."
