Nevada Governor Endorses Perry For President


The endorsements keep coming in the 2012 presidential election, with Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval throwing his support behind Texas fellow Governor Rick Perry. Sandoval told his local paper, “Our nation needs a leader in the White House who understands the role of government and our economy. Governor Rick Perry has the strongest record of job creation, fiscal discipline and executive branch leadership among the presidential candidates. As a governor, Rick Perry created a tremendous blueprint for job creation, and as president, I know he will get America working again. I consider Gov. Perry a friend, and I am proud to endorse his campaign for president.”

Sandoval is a second major Perry endorsement, with the first being Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. But unlike Jindal, Sandoval is governor of an early primary state, making his support that much more valuable in providing Perry with an advantage for a potential win that could provide momentum for the rest of the primary season.

Rival and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has so far received the endorsement of former Minnesota Governor (and former presidential candidate) Tim Pawlenty.

That is great ... one loser endorses another. I wish he gets more endorsements from the well known losers.

Sandoval should rethink his endorsement of Perry. I'd NEVER vote for either one of them.

Mickey J. hit it right on the head! You have to live in TX to know what is going on, you have to have it affect you on a day-to-day basis. I was there from 2006-2009 and jobs were tight! If you had one, you were lucky. Most people seemed to have had two jobs, I was looking for another one before I left. Even then, Perry was a dick! So, my thing is, don't judge TX by it's lame governor, because most of the people there are pretty decent folks.

I guess there is not going to be anyone worth voting for on either side. I guess I will have to vote third party.

Perry sure knows about job creation. That's why Texas has added over 200,000 government workers during his tenure.
