Rick Perry supporters say he and his campaign's top officials failed to rally evangelicals sufficiently to make him the viable alternative to Mitt Romney in what some conservatives say is rapidly turning into a disappointing non-contest for the presidential nomination.
"He has too few surrogates and not just among evangelicals. Where's [Louisiana Gov. Bobby] Jindal? He endorsed Perry strong and early," said Dave Battaglia, an evangelical Christian and Indiana/Armstrong Tea Party Patriots executive committee member.
Mr. Battaglia, on the other hand, is one of the few evangelicals to declare the race over for Mr. Perry.
