Rick Perry to drop out of presidential race
Texas Governor Rick Perry has an 11:00 news conference planned this morning and all reports are that he is planning to drop out of the presidential race.
I can't help but think that his lawsuit against the Commonwealth of Virginia could not have helped his cause. After being the darling of the state's Republicans at a fundraiser in September to failing to get on the March ballot to bringing legal action to get his name on the ballot which many interpreted as poor sportsmanship, this is not the ending he hoped for.
