President Obama has a Sin City problem that won't go away.
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.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who made his Republican presidential nomination candidacy official on his new campaign website and in Charleston, S.C., on Saturday, has named Rob Johnson as his national manager, The Washington Times has learned.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry will announce Saturday that he is running for the Republican presidential nomination in a move expected to fundamentally reshape the race and divert attention from other contenders, many of whom will be competing this weekend in the Iowa Straw Poll.
In spite of his thundering speeches against big government, Texas Gov. Rick Perry has a troubled relationship with the tea party, a rift increasingly obvious as he gets closer to a presidential bid.
His campaign already reeling from self-inflicted blows, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich found his 2012 White House hopes hit by yet another devastating setback Thursday when several senior campaign staffers abruptly quit following a long-brewing dispute over scheduling and fundraising.
"The voters in Texas are conservative, and I think anybody who wants to be successful has to be conservative, not just in word, but in deed — people who don't just talk the talk, but walk the walk," said David Carney, a GOP consultant who served as chief strategist for Mr. Perry's 2012 campaign.
Perry strategist David Carney said the campaign was doing well with evangelicals and leveraging their leaders' endorsements, noting that John Stemberger of the Florida Family Policy Council wrote in an opinion column Thursday that Mr. Perry is not only a true conservative on social, economic and defense issues, but the "most electable" of the Republican candidates against President Obama.
