Perry drops out, endorses Gingrich

Posted on Posted in Politics

In the last few weeks we have watched several Republican presidential hopefuls bow out of the race for the Republican nomination. Jon Huntsman and Michele Bachmann earlier this month and, at one point a major front-runner, Herman Cain in November of 2011. While news of Rick Perry dropping out was leaked last night earlier today Perry made the official announcement that he was stepping out of the race and throwing his support behind Newt Gingrich.

Perry’s departure is notable as today is the CNN Southern Republican Debate, only days before the South Carolina Republican Primary.
