Thoroughly depressing – Rick Perry endorses David Dewhurst for Hutchison’s Senate seat

I know, it’s politics.


The favor has been repaid.

this morning endorsed David Dewhurst for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.

Dewhurst, the state’s lieutenant governor, was a strong supporter of Perry’s ill-starred presidential campaign and stumped for Perry before the Iowa caucuses.

In a tweet this morning, Dewhurst (@DavidHDewhurst) declared, “I’m honored that veteran and conservative champion @GovernorPerryis endorsing our campaign for U.S. Senate.”

Dewhurst is leading in Republican primary polls over a field of rivals that includes former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz, former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert and former football player and ESPN commentator Craig James.

By the way, Rick Perry didn’t get much more enthusiastic support in his presidential bid than he did from Ted Cruz

Just sayin’…
