AUSTIN (AP) - Governor Rick Perry kicks off his TV ad campaign
on Monday -- just hours after Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn
announces plans to run either as a Republican or independent.

She's certain to continue her monthslong assault on Perry's
performance. But the Governor will respond by promoting job
creation, lawsuit reform and higher public school standards.

The 30-second ad will debut during Monday's Cotton Bowl matchup
between Texas Tech and Alabama.

The ad returns on Wednesday during the Rose Bowl, a national
title game between Texas and USC.

If Strayhorn runs as a Republican, Texans are in for a solid two
months of increasingly heated political commercials. If she runs as
an independent, the battle will last nearly a year.
