Mulvaney to endorse Perry in South Carolina

Columbia, South Carolina (CNN) - South Carolina Rep. Mick Mulvaney will endorse Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Monday, CNN has learned.

Mulvaney, elected in 2010, is an enormously popular figure in the state's conservative movement, even outside of his congressional district.

    If South Carolina represents the Republican Party President Obama has 2012 in the bag. Rick Perry is perfect for that old line former Texas Governor Ann Richards used when she was speaking about another oil company prostitute – Clayton Williams. Right after he declined to shake her hand to begin a debate old Ann said "My daddy used to say that fella has a big hat... but no cattle...". Perry is simply a less sincere and more dishonest version of "W". How did that work out for America?

    @LarryL I live in South Carolina and it the Republican is in charge, but they don't represent me. Those Teabagpublicans don't don't do anything to help me like Pres. Obama. Obama/Biden 2012!

    South Carolina too small to be a republic, too large to be a insane asylum. Perry say he will get government out of your life, lets see what he does with the people who lost those 300 homes from the fire.

    Will the fires be so far out of control that the Rickster will have to an excuse to miss Wednesday’s debate also? His poll numbers are going to deflate like a balloon...and he knows it.

    I just hope people don't accept Rick Perry so quickly if a few powerful people support him. People should review his record instead of seeing him at face value. Such as forced vaccine usage, or the Texas "miracle." Speaking of his "miracle," Don't North and South Dakota own Texas regarding employment? Perry's no magicman.
