Former Gov. Rick Perry Drops Out as GOP Candidate
|Rick Perry At Eagle Council XLIV|
He stressed the need that the next president be a strong supporter of Constitution and "stop Washington D.C. from trampling on the 10th Amendment" and the states. In his speech he mentioned that "we are already at war with radical Islam because they are already at war with America."
He also said that "conservatism is inherently optimistic" and "we can be the country that in our minds we know we can be." He did take a few indirect pokes at Donald Trump without using his name.
As we approached the question and answer period, he concluded his speech and surprised all by announcing that he was "suspending his campaign for president of the United States."
While the media in attendance rushed to get photographs, most of the attendees were momentarily stunned especially those who supported him.
However, his stepping down as a candidate is not surprising based his polling numbers, the large field of Republican contenders, and the fact that a fellow Texan, Sen Ted Cruz, is raising a lot of money, rising in the polls and is popular with conservatives.
