• Rick Perry Endorses Ted Cruz (VIDEO)

    It may come as no surprise that former Governor Rick Perry has endorsed Ted Cruz for president. As the endorsement season is upon us, the popular former governor and presidential candidate, Rick Perry was sought after by many of the top tier candidates.

    He has formally made his selection as fellow Texan, Senator Ted Cruz. Perry said, “Ted is the leader that we need to reignite the promise of America. That’s why I’m supporting Ted Cruz and asking Iowa Republicans to caucus for Cruz.”

    Perry went on to say in a video released by the campaign that, “Cruz is ready to serve as our commander-in-chief on day one.”

    As the candidates are in a mad dash to the finish line in Iowa, and the airwaves are full of negative ads, endorsements like Governor Perry’s can be a breath of fresh air to any campaign. From the Des Moines Register endorsing Marco Rubio, Sarah Palin endorsing Donald Trump, and Glenn Beck endorsing Cruz as well, the endorsements are taking center stage while each candidate attempts to gather all the votes they can before the February 1st Caucus.

    The Perry endorsement is a substantial victory for Ted Cruz. However, the effect remains unclear as the Perry endorsement would have made more news had Cruz not gotten it. For Cruz, who remains slightly behind leader Donald Trump, it is another feather in his cap.
