Perry Son Pledges Dad Will Be Ready for Debate

Rick Perry’s 28-year-old son, Griffin Perry, said yesterday that his father would be ready for tonight’s debate.

“I think he’s going to do very well in the debate tomorrow,” Perry told ABC News, while campaigning in New Hampshire.

“He’s not here this evening because he’s resting up, you know,” he added. “He was very focused on raising money and did a very good job at that. Now the focus will be the debates and when he gets focused he can do anything.”
