Hold on, McCain.Â Governor Good Hair last endorsed Giuliani and we all know where that got him.
My theory . . . Perry is concerned that Romney gives him a challenge for best GOP hair and Perry just doesn’t want any competition.
LOS ANGELES â€“ Texas Gov. Rick Perry will endorse John McCain for president, saying he is the best candidate in the GOP field to fight the war on terror.
The Texas governor’s first choice, Rudy Giuliani, dropped out of the presidential sweepstakes and on Wednesday endorsed Mr. McCain.
“For the governor, it came down to a very simple calculation: The single dominant issue is the war on terror,” said Perry spokesman Robert Black. “And he believes, looking at the field, the single best individual to be commander in chief and not flinch in this war is John McCain.”
The endorsement from the red-state governor comes just days before the Super Tuesday primary in which 21 states will weigh in. Mr. Perry will formally make his endorsement Thursday afternoon in Austin.
