Charleston, South Carolina (CNN) - Rick Perry is telling supporters that he will drop his bid for the Republican presidential nomination on Thursday, two sources familiar with the plans told CNN.

Good. Maybe this news will throw a bucket of water on the Ex’s interview.
Rick Santorum. Paging Rick Santorum. Please pick up the white phone in the lobby.
As a Perry supporter, I was saddened to see a lack of improvement in the polling numbers, particularly after his excellent performance in the last debate.
If he drops out, I hope for a long battle between Mitt & Newt, and a miracle at a brokered convention.
Rick Perry has shown himself to be a statesman.
He has subjugated his aspirations to the good of America.
Romney cannot be the nominee.
Rick has done the right and noble thing.Dropping out on Sunday would do nothing for Gingrich, nor stop Romney.
Newt will not forget this.
And neither will millions of conservatives.
Perry would have been a far better president than Santorum. Hope Santorum falls way behind Newt in S.C.
This is the right time and right way to do it, if he was going to. Now he’s free to move mountains for Newt. GO PERRY!
Now, isn’t that gracious?
So, maybe we are seeing the formation of a Gingrich-Perry ticket with Palin as Sec of Energy.
He's a good and decent man. It's the country's loss. Good luck with the leftovers. Hope they don't implode and leave us with Mitt.
It’s now going to be a 3 way race between Newt, Obama, and Paul running as third party. You heard it here first!
To Perry supporters, my heart goes out to you. Palin fans and Cain fans know how you feel. For what it is worth, I hate Michele B. for what she did to Perry. I hope her political career is over and I hope this is the start of bigger things for Perry.
Thanks to the many Perry fans who were ‘normal’. To the Perry fans that were a bit difficult, if forgive you ;-)
He is a good man, sincere and Conservative.
That he isn’t the best candidate or conservative is irrelevant. He certainly has leadership skills.
He would be an asset to any administration, a great personaility, far better than the boring suits in power now.
Rick Santorum - for the good of the GOP you previously went as far as endorsing Snarlin sphincter, dropping out so that Newt can beat Willard should be tons easier to reconcile for the good of conservatism.

Perry just gave a Texas-sized kick to the peas of ABC and Drudge.
Take a break, Perry, and get ready to be VP in a few months!
