After dropping out of the race in January, Texas Gov. Rick Perry endorsed Newt Gingrich. But now that Gingrich is essentially out, Perry announced Wednesday that he is backing Mitt Romney instead.
“Mitt Romney has earned the Republican Presidential nomination through hard-work, a strong organization, and disciplined message of restoring America,”
said Perry in a statement.
“So today I join the many conservative Republicans across the nation in endorsing Mitt Romney for President and pledge to him, my constituents and the Republican Party.”
