Perry Backs Romney

Texas Governor Rick Perry, who briefly threatened Mitt Romney’s frontrunner status last summer, has formally announced his endorsement for the former Massachusetts Governor.

Texas Governor Rick Perry, who briefly threatened Mitt Romney’s frontrunner status last summer, has formally announced his endorsement for the former Massachusetts Governor.

“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,” Perry said in a statement Thursday. “Mitt ‘s vision and record of private sector success will put America back on the path of job creation, economic opportunity and limited government.”

Perry added that he will attempt to assist the de facto nominee in unseating President Obama.

On the eve of the South Carolina primary, Perry endorsed Newt Gingrich. However, reports indicate that the former Speaker intends to leave the field next week.

The Texas Governor made an impressive splash when he first entered the GOP race, but found his popularity dissipate after he announced his support for the DREAM Act and delivered a series of lackluster debate performances. The nail in his coffin however, was the now infamous “oops” moment, wherein Perry forgot mid-debate the name of one government agency he intended to eliminate.
