Rick Perry's Announcement And Endorsement

"I believe Newt [Gingrich] is a conservative visionary who can transform our country. We've had our differences, which campaigns will inevitably have. And Newt is not perfect, but who among us is? The fact is there is forgiveness for those who seek God. And I believe in the power of redemption, for it is a central tenet of my Christian faith. I have no question that Newt Gingrich has the heart of a conservative reformer with the ability to rally and captivate the conservative movement, the courage to tell those Washington interests to 'take a hike', if that's what in the best interest of our country." -Texas Governor Rick Perry, with a luke-warm endorsement of Newt Gingrich earlier today.
