Perry to drop out and endorse Gingrich

in Uncategorized by

Rick Perry will end his bid for the Republican presidential nomination today and endorse Newt Gingrich, the New York Times reports, “a decision that could influence the South Carolina primary on Saturday.”

“The announcement from Mr. Perry was expected to inject fresh momentum into Mr. Gingrich’s efforts to emerge as the leading alternative to Mitt Romney. It was unclear whether Mr. Perry would campaign with Mr. Gingrich in the final two days of the primary campaign here.”
