Perry misstep could change the Republican race
Republican Presidential candidate Governor Rick Perry may lose support after making a mistake last night during the Republican Debate in Michigan. When listing the three agencies he wants to cut from the federal government, Perry could only name two. University of Florida Political Science Professor Michael Martinez says the mistake could cause voters to lose confidence in Perry’s ability to lead.
Martinez says Perry wants to emerge as frontrunner in the Republican race, but a pattern of mistakes could cause voters to look for alternative candidates.
