Ron Paul dings Gov. Perry for belonging to 'status quo'

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) is firmly entrenched in the political status quo and could dilute the GOP establishment's voting power in the 2012 presidential election, GOP candidate Ron Paul said Wednesday.

Paul, a congressman who hails from Perry's state, said that the third-term governor could bring positive elements to the race by promoting Texas's economic record. But overall, Perry won't identify with voters who are "disenchanted with the status quo."
