NBC News’ Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd predicted that if Rick Perry wins the Republican presidential nomination, a “semi-credible independent candidate” would emerge, Matt Lewis reports via The Political Wire.

Said Todd: “If Perry’s the nominee, I think there’s going to be be a serious effort of some sort of moderate Republican linking up with a conservative Democrat of trying to run in some sort of like, ‘let’s throw all the bums out — let’s crash the party,’ you know, a la Perot.”

He added: “I just continue to believe that’s what’s coming.”
