Texas governor Rick Perry endorses Mitt Romney
While the GOP primary is likely over, endorsements from conservatives can only help Mitt Romney. Romney needs to establish his conservative “street cred.” Rick Perry was popular with religious conservatives, so his endorsement of Romney is good news. Originally Rick Perry had endorsed Newt Gingrich, but there have been reports today that Gingrich will suspend his campaign this coming Tuesday.
“Mitt Romney has earned the Republican Presidential nomination through hard-work, a strong organization, and disciplined message of restoring America after nearly four years of failed job-killing policies from President Obama and his administration,” Perry said in a statement, according to ABC.
