Texas governor Rick Perry endorses Giuliani

Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday won the endorsement of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, despite their differences on abortion rights.

Perry, an abortion opponent, said his biggest concern had been Giuliani’s support for abortion rights but that he was satisfied Giuliani would appoint judges who view the issue conservatively.

“The one (issue) that I wanted to hear him give me an answer and look me right in my eyes was that issue of who can I expect, what type of individual can I expect on the Supreme Court,” Perry said at a news conference with Giuliani.

“He clearly said … you can look for people like Scalia and Roberts and Alito. Let me tell you, I can live with that,” Perry said, referring to conservative Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito and Chief Justice John Roberts.

Perry said when he buys a pickup truck, he doesn’t rule it out simply because it has one option he doesn’t like.

Giuliani, who is addressing social conservative voters this weekend in Washington, said he wants conservatives to focus on areas where he agrees with them.

“I’m not going to get every vote,” he said. “The idea is going to be that there’s enough we agree about and enough we’re facing — foreign threats and domestic problems — that it may just be if they think about it, that I’m the best candidate.”

“What I really want is a relationship in which we respect each other, even if we disagree,” Giuliani said.

An important endorsement for the Mayor from a social conservative Governor in a very red state.

Perry has drawn the conclusion that the Mayor is not a one issue candidate and nor should the GOP nominee be.

Will California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger who agrees with Rudy on abortion be the next endorser?

Stay tuned……

  1. Yeah a conservative Govenor in a very Red State that won 39% of the vote. That means that 61% of Texans cannot stand the guy.

  2. There were four candidates in that race. He won 58% in his first election in 2002.

    Texas Gubernatorial Election 2002
    Party Candidate Votes % ±%
    Republican Rick Perry (Incumbent) 2,617,106 58.1
    Democratic Tony Sanchez 1,809,915 40.3
    Texas Gubernatorial Election 2006
    Party Candidate Votes % ±%
    Republican Rick Perry (Incumbent) 1,716,803 39.3 -18.8
    Democratic Chris Bell 1,310,353 29.8 -10.5
    Independent Carole Keeton Strayhorn 797,577 18.1
    Independent Richard “Kinky” Friedman 546,869 12.4
    Libertarian James Werner 133,806 1.8

    So, your point is that his endorsement is worthless?

    Hardly in a GOP primary election
