Perry Camp Announces 21 S.C. Endorsements

The Perry campaign released a list of 21 South Carolina state senators and representatives who have endorsed Rick Perry today.

“Republicans across South Carolina want two things in our nominee: a proven conservative record of job creation and a plan to put America back on track,” Senate majority leader Harvey Peeler, who has endorsed Perry, said in a statement. “Rick Perry is the candidate who meets both of those criteria. The number and the regional diversity represented by today’s endorsements are a clear indication of the strong support Gov. Perry has across the Palmetto State.”
