Rick Perry Makes $1M Ad Buy on Fox News Channel

The New York Times reports Texas Gov. Rick Perry‘s presidential campaign is buying $975,000 in advertising time on Fox News Channel “focusing mostly on the network’s daytime programming, rather than its far more expensive prime-time programs like ‘The O’Reilly Factor.’”

Rival campaigns and media analysts took the move as a sign that Mr. Perry’s advertising team believes raising his standing nationally with Republican opinion makers and donors — many of whom have their office televisions tuned to Fox News all day — is as important as doing so in critical states.

Perry made the media rounds Thursday — following his debate gaffe Wednesday night — including with FNC’s Megyn Kelly.
