Gov. Rick Perry's latest TV spot marks the first appearance of "liberal Barney Frank" in Texas's GOP primary race ad wars.
The Massachusetts congressman narrowly beat Perry's opponent, U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, to be named "Porker of the Year" by Citizens Against Government Waste.
The ad, called "1993," hits this point and a number of others to make its case that "Sen. Hutchison went to Congress to change Washington, but Washington changed her."
