Hey, I like Governor Rick Perry.
But I also want to be clear and as honest as I can be. Before Perry dropped out, he was being called the establishment candidate. So with this endorsement, can Ted Cruz continue to force the issue on how establishment big names are lining up behind frontrunner Donald Trump? I took a look at endorsements so far for candidates and except for Governor Jeb Bush , Cruz is killing it!

From ABC News:
The Lone Star State endorsement marks one of Cruz’s most high-profile backers and aims to give his campaign a much-needed boost just one week before the crucial, first-in-the-nation caucuses in Iowa.
“Of those individuals who have a chance to win the Republican primary, at this juncture, from my perspective, Ted Cruz is by far the most consistent conservative in that crowd,” Perry told Politico on Sunday night. “And that appears to be down to two people.”
Perry, who gave up his own unsuccessful presidential bid in September after just 97 days on the trail, had been plagued by stagnant polling and lackluster fundraising.
The former Texas governor had been a vocal critic of Trump, especially during the final weeks of his campaign, calling the billionaire a “cancer on conservatism” and bashing his “nativist appeals.”
“He knows he’s going to surround himself with people who do have that experience, and I’m very satisfied that on Day 1, he will be ready to be commander-in-chief,” Perry told Politico.
So there you go! Perry is a great guy in my opinion. He’s a Christian man who believes in America and wants change. He supports Cruz for President and when he says that, he means that.
Share your thoughts on this endorsement. Will it mean anything in the polls?
