Wow. Rick Perry is really serious about helping Ted Cruz win:
BLOOMBERG – Rick Perry, the former Texas governor whose own presidential ambitions were dashed last year, is working with a new super-political action committee that plans to enlist prominent veterans to support Ted Cruz’s campaign for the White House.
The group also plans to highlight veterans’ issues during the course of the campaign, said Kathy Walt, a former Perry chief of staff who is working with the group. Among those who will be joining Perry, Walt said, are the decorated former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell; Dakota Meyer, a Marine Corps veteran and Medal of Honor recipient; and Taya Kyle, the widow of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.
They and Perry “are all going to be swinging for the fences in support of Cruz,” Walt said. The new group, known as Keep the Promise to Veterans, formally registered with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday.
I’m so glad Perry is backing Cruz like this. He’s not only endorsed Cruz, but he’s out on the campaign trail and now he’s doing this.
Perry is a big voice in Cruz’s corner and I hope it helps Cruz get past the finish line.
