Dobson endorses Perry in Texas governor's race

(CNN) – Dr. James Dobson, founder of the conservative Focus on the Family organization, endorsed Texas Gov. Rick Perry for re-election Monday.

"Over the years, Gov. Perry has established a record that is consistently pro-life, pro-marriage and pro-religious liberty," Dobson said in a written statement. "No other candidate in this race measures up to the high standards established by Gov. Perry on these critical issues of our day."

Perry is locked in a primary race against Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. Hutchison was recently endorsed by former President George H.W. Bush.
