Posted on 02/17/2012 3:31:47 PM PST by Red Steel

Texas Gov. Rick Perry will appear with Newt Gingrich for the first time at the CNN debate in Mesa, Ariz., on Feb. 22, a spokesperson for Perry confirmed to ABC News.

Perry will appear in the spin room with Gingrich after the debate. There are no other events planned, at this time.

Perry endorsed Gingrich when he dropped out of the race on Jan. 19 but has yet to appear publicly with him.

Red- just posted the same— you beat me. Asked mods to delete my thread.

Here was my comment:

Biggest news on the day is Mr. Adelson’s $10m— Love that man’s loyalty- wish he were my friend.-:) Newt will never lack for funds in this campaign.

Now, the Honorable Gov. Perry-— class act. He understands that this campaign is about Newt of 1994 versus the conspiring Establishment “wimps”.

Sarah- time to walk the walk.

The funds raised in these FReepathons go to pay our current quarter expenses. But we're also going to try to replace some of our older servers and failing equipment this year so we're going to add a little extra to our FReepathon goals. John is estimating ten to fifteen thousand to do this and I'd like to get it all in place and working before the election cycle is fully heated up, so we'll try to bring in a little extra now, if we can, and the rest next quarter.

Get back in the race Gov. Perry, you are head and shoulders better than any candidate in this primary. I like your conservative record, your conservative platform including your economic plan, your states rights beliefs, and other provisions I know of. I don’t give a tinkers damn for remaining big government choices we have before us!!

Posting the same post on both Perry threads? Lame! Your PDS syndrome isn’t gone, just dormant!

I’ll always be proud of Governor Perry for ending his campaign at the time & in the manner he did. What a class act. I hope that one day I’ll have the opportunity to cast a vote for him as President.

Go Newt!

Rick Perry should cherish his richly deserved one-way ticket to Palookaville instead of turning it into a round trip to campaign for another loser. Staying out of the public eye should be Rick Perry’s top priority until his disastrous candidacy fades enough from memory that he might someday be taken seriously again.

Governor Perry is a patriot first and I’ll forever be amazed and disgusted that he didn’t receive the endorsement of the Evangelical pastors from that meeting of theirs in Texas.

Ok..here's some extra..just sent in for equipment...we want this surely before the general election....glad to see some new equipment forthcoming! Will send more later....should we designate it for equipment or doesn't it matter?

Hardly, I will take Santorum who can win.

You go ahead and dream. If Newt was going to be the winner, he would be winning everything. Look, Newt is an old guy who has been around the block too many times.

People don’t trust him. Just look at his dabble into liberalism the last ten years.

Hard to counter that.

TEXAS IS A GREAT STATE, not Palookaville !

Furthermore, Governor Rick Perry is not a loser and Newt Gingrich has accomplished more in one week than you in your lifetime.

Your posting history is VERY interesting. No posting between 2004 and now, Sleeper TROLL?

Bluestocking definition: noun a learned, bookish, or pedantic woman...

OR, in the case of liberal women and trolls, most likely a jumped-up self-impressed pseudo-intellectual who wears Birkenstocks, no makeup, and doesn’t shave.

Governor Perry deserved their endorsement. He was the only Evangelical they knew he is a devoted Christian. You know I was for Newt Gingrich but he and Santorum are both Catholics and Governor Perry is also 100% pro-life. Those pastors lost all of my respect with they didn't endorse Governor Perry. That should have been a slam dunk, no-brainer.

I love Newt and what he did for us in the 80’s and 90’s. He was the man!

I like Perry as governor of Texas. He is the man TODAY!

And Perry for getting out of this race.

He was splitting the conservative vote.

Now Newt is. It is what it is.

Politics 101 = Beat the TWO libs, Willard & Barack by any means legal.

Several and always with smarmy, nasty remarks about Newt Gingrich or Rick Perry or one of Gingrich’s patriot supporters, like Sarah Palin.

They’re very easy to spot.

I agree. I will say one thing for this election season so far---it's flushed out the pretenders.

Gov Perry deserved their endorsement based on his record, and he continues fighting for his principles.

Perry just signed into law two bills aimed at human trafficking.. .

“Perry said the legislation gives a voice to the voiceless” while striking out at those who engage in human trafficking, which the governor described as “modern-day slavery.”

He is it seems ;)

Btw, did you see this today over at Politico?

Separate filings late Friday indicate that Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s presidential campaign spent more than eight times the money it raised during January — an ultimately futile effort to regain relevance and momentum he squandered late last year amid poor debate performances and ill-fated campaign strategy.

“But by that point the whole thing felt like a snowball careening downhill, out of control.”

That is basically the same way this entire nomination process feels. Pray we don’t end with a final downward spiral to our doom with a Saint Rick or Mitten’s nomination.

I’m not understanding the Perry hate. I was a Cain supporter early on, but Perry is my governor and a good man. To constantly insult him and his intelligence is getting quite old. Saint Rick is a moderate, which is probably why you tie him in with another good-for-nothing Huckabee in your tag.

Although Governor Perry may not have been my first choice during the primary, he has been a very good governor and I am pleased to claim him as such.

I sincerely hope you live in a great state with excellent politicians. :)

You are not understanding the Perry hate because only liberals cloaked in red-sounding screen names come out of the woodwork to sink daggers into Perry when his sphere of competence and influence circles back.

Cainconservative is a liberal troll who knows how to not cross the line by one micron.
