Anita Perry: Rick Perry Being Tested Due to ‘His Faith’

At a speech in South Carolina today, Anita Perry indicated that she believed her husband was under fire due to “his faith.”

“It’s been a rough month. We have been brutalized and beaten up and chewed up in the press,” Perry said, according to NBC News. “We are being brutalized by our opponents, and our own party. So much of that is, I think they look at him, because of his faith. He is the only true conservative – well, there are some true conservatives. And they’re there for good reasons. And they may feel like God called them too. But I truly feel like we are here for that purpose.”
