Remember Rick Perry?
He was the Texas governor that ran for POTUS and loved to wear cowboy hats. Every once in a while, he'd get tongued-tied when saying things off-the-cuff. (We swear we're not talking about George W. Bush, circa 2000.)
He was the Republican frontrunner for a while. ... Yeah, yeah, who wasn't? (Except Ron Paul.)
Anyway, when he dropped out in January, Rick made the surprising choice to back Newt Gingrich -- instead throwing his support behind the foregone conclusion that was Mitt Romney.
Well, now that Newt is pretty much done running for President, Rick wants everyone to know that he's changing his endorsement to Mitt.
"Today I join the many conservative Republicans across the nation in endorsing Mitt Romney for president and pledge to him, my constituents and the Republican Party I will continue to work hard to help defeat President Obama," he said via statement, which was released to the press this week.
Rick, we can assure you that everyone figured you'd support Mitt and we don't think anyone cares. Thanks for the update, though!
