Rick Perry drops out of presidential raceAfter a campaign rife with poor debate performances, questionable policies, and religious pandering Rick Perry has finally come to his senses and has ended his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

Although he’s been struggling since his first dismal debate performance, Perry’s camp had hoped for a good showing in the upcoming South Carolina Republican primary. However, Perry has been losing support in the state, and just two days before the primary vote, he’s called it quits.

“I’ve always believed the mission is greater than the man. As I have contemplated the future of this campaign, I have come to the conclusion that there is no viable path forward for me in this 2012 campaign,” Perry said in a press conference in South Carolina.

“Therefore today I am suspending my campaign and endorsing Newt Gingrich for president of the United States,” Perry continued. “I believe Newt is a conservative visionary who can transform our country.”

Although Gingrich is also trailing front-runner Mitt Romney, Perry hopes Conservatives will coalesce behind the former Speaker of the House and support Gingrich’s bid for the White House. However, considering how quickly Perry fell from grace, it’s hard to believe his endorsement of Gingrich will help the candidate defeat Romney.

What do you think? Will Perry’s endorsement help Newt Gingrich?

  • With a couple of Republican candidates dropping out of the presidential race, it looks like Barack Obama may end up winning the reelection by default.

      God, I hope not.

    • I hope he doesn’t either- as I didn’t think he was an experienced politican nor a good choice for a presidential candidate. However, from the way things are looking, he may get another term in the White House. So far, Rick Perry and Herman Cain are gone, Newt Gingrich has no chance of being nominated, Ron Paul has a chance, but too many skeletons in his closet and Mitt Romney doesn’t stand a chance either.

  • I think Ron Paul is beating Obama , if what I am seeing on twitter is true. Black voters are not looking for fluff.

    The democrats are in real troubl., the black young vote is disappearing fast and rightly so.

    What can they offer?
