Every Man For Himself In GOP Rout, Perry Endorses Trump

I can scarcely believe that Rick Perry, a man we had tossed around as a potential third party #NeverTrump torpedo, has fallen behind the presumptive nominee. CNN reported:

Perry, speaking by phone from his hometown of Roundtop, Texas, acknowledged Trump is not his ideal choice. When Perry was a candidate for president earlier in the 2016 cycle, he was the first to come out and criticize Trump and question his conservative credentials.

“He is not a perfect man. But what I do believe is that he loves this country and he will surround himself with capable, experienced people and he will listen to them,” Perry said.

Perry, who has been urged to run as a third party candidate, dismissed that notion as “quixotic.”

“I believe in the process, and the process has said Donald Trump will be our nominee and I’m going to support him and help him and do what I can,” Perry said.

At this point, the GOP has become every man for himself. They are scattering like a routed army with no banner or commander.
