Republican Donors Abandon Rick Perry


Republican Donors Abandon Rick Perry


Texas Governor Rick Perry’s fundraising advantage in the race for the Republican presidential nomination is disappearing.

Perry — who led the GOP field in fundraising with $15 million in the bank on Oct. 1 — has been struggling to reel in donations since his long string of gaffes and subsequent drop in the polls. According to a Houston Chronicle report, one Perry fundraiser believes that he will raise only between $3 million and $5 million in the final three months of the year. That would be less than one third of what he raised in the first six weeks of his campaign, and would likely place Perry’s fundraising total behind those of rivals Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, and Ron Paul.

    isn’t one of them worth the powder n lead to blow em to h_ll n back anyways

    although i feel the dem’s ain’t worth a sh_t either i do predict a mass migration back to the dem party.

    what have we heard from the repubs (no dont tax the RICH! they are all that matter to washington while this country falls apart! 🙁

    face it folks the rich fill the re-election coffers and the few pennies we donate don’t count for much!

    we need real reform in this country and start with washington fonancing their own re-elections and all outside donations stopped.

    WAKE UP AMERICA……………………………!

    Get real and vote this guy off the island. It’s time for this reality show to shut down and the GOP needs to find an intelligent candidate.

    Get real! The problem with the GOP is that it does NOT have an intelligent candidate running. Their debates look like a clown show. I love them. Get out the popcorn, they are better than Saturday Night Live!

    I guess everyone knows the Real Perry. He is going too loose all the way Now! He will finally get out of office and replaced by an intelligent Man or Women soon. He says that Pres. Obama “THINKS” he is smart? Guess what “HE IS!” Perry said that Pres. Obama grew up privileged. “No” he did not “HE WAS ON FOOD STAMPS!” He is embarrassing to see. He reminds me of Baby Bush, I think Baby Bush was a little smarter! “NOT!”
    Perry needs to come back to TX. And try to raise the minimum wage. People over here need 4 jobs to make their mortgage. Because we need to pay his Mortgage. Not any more. I believe Texas should have recalled his Ass.

    We’ve already had two shoot from the hip Presidents, Reagan and Bush. What was achieved? Nothing but an assault on the middle class and endless, needless wars. If Wayne loved his country so much why didn’t he try harder to have any of his sons opt for military service? In the movies he was a hero, that’s about it. I enjoyed his movies like most Americans, but let’s not confuse his onscreen persona with any real life acts that were memorable and history making. He received the Medal of Freedom medal, for what, acting? Please! He was right about the P. Canal, period!
