Rick Perry will campaign with Newt Gingrich and attend the GOP debate in Arizona on Wednesday, according to reports. It will be the Texas governors first public appearance with Gingrich since he dropped out of the GOP race and endorsed him last month.
Perry dropped his presidential bid in mid-January, endorsing Gingrich just days before the South Carolina primary. Gingrich won the vote in the state, but has since fallen behind the other GOP candidates in the polls and has failed to win any other nominating contests.
Perrys appearance with Gingrich in Arizona is his first major campaign event for the former House speaker, but he has made fundraising calls on Gingrichs behalf from Texas.
Perry told the Texas Tribune earlier this week that he had a great time running for president. Addressing speculation that he will either run for reelection for a fourth term as governor of Texas or make another bid for the White House, Perry said he was leaning toward running for reelection.
If I had to make a decision today, Id say, yeah, absolutely, he said. Im going to give it consideration. But again, its way early.
The CNN-hosted debate Wednesday night in Mesa, Ariz., is the first GOP debate in a month, and the last before Super Tuesday, when multiple states
Gingrich/Perry would be just right!!
Even if Gingrich had no problem with jobs going to Mexico?
Maybe I’m wrong, but I thought nearly all conservatives were for trade agreements because they would make products cheap for consumers.

Back in the 80’s this would be something gays would say.
newt and rick? hell,just put up a sign at the border saying welcome to america
Ya need to go back and do some research so you can correct yourself.
Perry has more conservative platform, has a solid record in governing one of the largest economies in the world,(Gingrich has none) and has strong Christian credentials. Perry is my favorite.
great source, an amatuerish leftwing site. Are you sure you aren’t paid by Axlerod?
Is that the best you got? Or acting like the three proverbial monkeys is what you do for a living.
Are you speaking for Santurom?
You sure aren’t making him look good.
Better than what’s Perry doing to Gingrich in TX where Santorum leads Romney by 20 points and Gingrich is finishing dead last.
Well now, your last post at least had something of value to it.
WE are ALL Conservatives and deserve better than name calling and making our Candidate look stupid.
Consider that many read these threads and “PAY ATTENTION” to the words and attitude expressed by a Santorum or Gingrich Representative.
GO NEWT! GO Santurom!
Let’s have one of THESE TWO WIN. NOT ROMNEY... NOT OBAMA!
Three cheers to that!
Thanks Red Steel.
