Voter reform group launches ads attacking Perry in Iowa

"Rick Perry was born to be a politician. You could tell from the first time he lost at marbles," says a narrator in the ad.

A boy in the ad posing as a young Perry loses a game of marbles and says, "Wait, we need to change these results."

"Tell Rick Perry that people matter more than politicians. Support the National Popular Vote Initiative," concludes the ad.

A spokesman for the initiative, Tom Golisano, claimed Perry sent a letter several months ago with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) urging Republican governors to veto legislation pertaining to the national popular vote.

"That bothers us, because what it says ... to the American public [is] if you take this position ... it's OK if the candidate with the least number of votes wins," Golisano said Friday on MSNBC.
