Looking at Rick Perry’s White House Run
Rick Perry’s announcement to stay in the Republican presidential race caught many people off guard this morning–including some of his staffers. The annoucement, via Twitter, came about the same time that rival Michelle Bachmann announced she would suspend her campaign for the GOP nomination.
KUT hosted a Tele-Town Hall meeting this afternoon on the Perry candidacy. It was moderated by KUT’s Nathan Bernier and featured KUT political reporter Ben Philpott and NPR national political correspondent Don Gonyea, talking about Governor Perry’s announcement to first reconsider his candidacy last night, and his subsequent announcement this morning to press on to primaries in New Hampshire and South Carolina.
