UPDATE: RICK PERRY DROPPING OUT TODAY
THURSDAY: 8:30 AM
While I liked Rik Perry I applaud his decision to drop out and allow the race to focus on the conservative alternatives to Romney that have a real chance at the nomination.
There is now increasing pressure on Rick Perry to drop out of the race before the South Carolina primary on Saturday in order to avoid splitting the conservative vote.
Today, Laura Ingraham is urging him to drop out to avoid splitting the conservative vote, since he has no chance at winning South Carolina.
A South Carolina State Senator, Larry Grooms has defected from the Perry camp and is now backing Santorum as of this morning.
@AdamBeam is reporting that Rick Perry has cancelled his appearance today at Bob Jones University, which 3 days before a primary is akin to a sighting of the Grim Reaper in South Carolina presidential politics.
And in other news, Perry is now polling third the Presidential primary in…..TEXAS, behind Romney and Gingrich.
I don’t say this often, but I agree with Laura Ingraham. It’s time for Perry to go, and avoid being this cycle’s Fred Thompson.
