He might have lost control of to Ron Paul's campaign, but Texas Gov. Rick Perry isn't done with this race yet. National Journal's Reid Wilson reports that he's saturating the Iowa airwaves, rightfully recognizing that any chances he has will hinge on his performance in the Jan. 3 caucuses:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry will saturate the Iowa airwaves next week in a major push to boost his poll numbers just three weeks before the state's first-in-the-nation caucuses.

Perry's campaign has purchased $1.2 million in airtime over the next four weeks, a source familiar with the ad markets said on Wednesday. And new details of the spots he's purchased show his team will pour at least $653,000 into Iowa television and radio this week alone.

In all, Perry is buying 8,000 points just this week, which is a huge amount of airtime.
