Texas Governor Rick Perry is gaining substantive traction in the upper political echelons of New Hampshire, a key primary state. Wednesday Perry announced endorsements from 27 New Hampshire Republican state representatives.
“Gov. Perry’s record creating the nation’s best pro-jobs environment and commitment to get America working again is earning strong support from New Hampshire Republican leaders,” said Rob Johnson, Perry’s campaign manager. “These 27 New Hampshire legislative endorsements triple the number of legislative endorsements announced by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney last week, and he’s been running for president continually for four years.”
