Skip to comments.The Perry-Giuliani Alliance

The two men are good friends, and Perry was the only Republican governor in the country to endorse Giulianis presidential campaign in 2008. Payback could benefit Perry on a number of fronts most notably fundraising and would likely strengthen his status as a top-tier candidate if he decides to run.First and most importantly, Giuliani has deep connections in the New York City Republican money world.
Perry has never had to raise money under federal contribution limits $2,500 for the primary and $2,500 for the general election is all any single donor can give and would have to change his model of finding a handful of major donors who can write huge checks to one centered around big bundlers who can collect hundreds of smaller checks.
His fundraising base in Texas gives Perry a foothold in one of the most donor-rich states in the country. With Giuliani making introductions for him in New York City, Perry would almost certainly have the financial foundation he would need to make a credible run particularly given some of the less-than-inspiring sums reported over the past three months by his would-be rivals for the nomination.

Rudy is persona non grata on FR. Best way to lose posting privileges is to support Rooty.
Endorsing Rooty for president.
Vote-crazed Perry is gaga for amnesty. Doing the quid
pro quo----shower illegals with tax dollars....get votes.
Perry sees exceptions in his opposition to abortion, takes pride in promoting the wind scam for the rest of us.
Perry’s carefully orchestrated plan to co-opt the Iowa caucuses without actually being one of the official candidates failed miserably.
The Perry for president drumbeat was incessant as he laid low——at the last minute he made his move——Perry hoped to catapult to the top and make mincemeat out of the other candidates.
Iowans didn’t buy it. Perry had a miserable showing——coming in at the back of the pack.
ed kock started what turnaround? how? please provide facts...
He’s using the Obama strategies and I find it to be totally disgusting. His supporters are accusing anyone who questions him of being liberal trolls. Refusing to talk to the media and flooding the net with pro Perry messages and attempting to control the message.
Most disgusting in my opinion were his attempts to grab the headlines from events he wasn’t even man enough to be part of.
Some of our Texas FReepers are saying this is all typical Perry. When he does something unpopular he blames the legislature and if its popular its all him.
Just one more Eddie Haskell RINO.
You nailed it terrifically. Omao's media massager Anita (gag) Dunn said later that THEY decided what the media would know about Omao.
Most disgusting in my opinion were Perry's attempts to grab the headlines from Iowa events he wasnt even man enough to be part of.
That got him nowhere---he expected to sail to victory, to be carried out of the arena like a hero.
Now he's a big flop. Wonder what he'll do next.
No comparison with McCain, IMO.
Lots of fine governors out there who would make poor presidents.
In Michigan, Rick Snyder has far surpassed my expectations but I would have a hard time supporting him for president. He’s pure business but refuses to talk about social issues. He also has a green streak a mile wide. He also took high speed rail money which is why I write to him once a week asking him to tell Obama “No thank you”.
“Rick Perry/Rudy Giuliani equals The RINO Ticket, and it would help boost ALL of the truly non-RINO candidates for 12 POTUS, IMHO. Also, having Rick Perry in the race damages all of the other RINO candidates in the race.”
Agree. Perry/Giuliani assures us that we’ll have a conservative as third choice in 2012 and enough Republicans will defect to assure that the Dems hold the White House. So goodbye Supreme Court.
For Heaven’s Sake, the least Perry can do is line himself up with a conservative, to give the ticket some degree of balance.
That is the first time I’ve ever heard of a politician taking credit for something he didn’t do! /s
“His (Rudy’s) lawsuits against American gun manufacturers are hard to forgive.”
No, they’re IMPOSSIBLE to forgive. It’s a DIRTY, backdoor, and unconstitutional method to try to force his policies on a country that has already made up its mind regarding guns, and has elected people that represent that viewpoint.
Those were our choices in the last TX primary and McCain had already won the nomination before we voted.
I voted for Romney in the primary, not because I liked him but because I wasn't about to vote McCain.
Breaking news is that Pawlenty is OUT!
“Breaking news is that Pawlenty is OUT!”
OMG!!!! I need a building to jump from.
Well, maybe Huntsman will get his votes to add to the 20 of his own (LOL).
Meant to say 2008, rather than 2011, but no matter really. A reptile is a reptile, even if he’s changed his colors to blend into the background. Perry’s trying an 11th-hour image change to make himself look like something he’s not. I could never elect someone who doesn’t even answer to his proper name as president.
“See the Chameleon,
Lying there in the sun.
All things to everyone,
Run, run away.”
I don’t blame Perry for endorsing Rudy in 2008 - the GOP choices were bad all around. But it would be political suicide to have Rudy on the ticket. Bernie Kerick is just the starting point of his warts.
Hang around FR candidate threads for a few days, and you will find out that in fact there are two. :-)
Thank goodness I hang out at Free Republic, where that sort of thing never happens.
