Romney-Perry Square Off Online

Perry's new ad focuses on policy and stays away from political attacks.

The two biggest fundraisers in the GOP presidential primary have launched new web ads. Each taking a different approach.

Mitt Romney's ad attacks Gov. Rick Perry's record of job creation - questioning many of the governor's statements on how well the Texas economy has done under his watch.

The Perry ad doesn't mention Romney or any of the other GOP candidates at all.  Instead he uses his time to talk about part 1 of his economic plan that he rolled out in Pittsburgh last week.

Part 2 of Perry's economic plan will be released next Tuesday in South Carolina.
