Rick Perry Heading Back to Texas

Texas Governor Rick Perry announced today that he’s dropping out of the GOP race for President, admitting there’s no “viable path” to the nomination.  He then endorsed Newt Gingrich (who happens to be right on the food stamp thing).

I happen to agree with Perry’s decision and his campaign assessment.  He peaked last Fall when it was his turn and has been hanging around ever since.  Unfortunately for him, the build-up was too huge and his debate performances were too small, more memorable for his gaffes than his policy positions.

That leaves only Newt, Ron Paul, Romney, and Santorum left for the chance to oust Obama in the Fall.
