A convention opening pep talk from former Governor Rick Perry to the Texas Delegation at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
“Hell Donald Trump wasn’t my first choice–I was my first choice” Perry said drawing laughter from those who gathered for a Convention opening breakfast, urging the GOP to keep things simple.
“Donald Trump… Hillary Clinton… the Supreme Court. That is what is at hand my friends” Perry said, praising Trump and Vice-Presidential Pick Mike Pence.
“Donald Trump or Mike Pence may not agree with me 100% of the time–but, having served you as Governor for 14-years, not many of you agreed with me 100% of the time” Perry said, drawing a smattering of laughter.
The former Governor also seemed to enjoy the suggestion that Texas Republicans are bold and loud.
“We’re that way because we understand the importance of the values and the philosophy that has been projected by the State of Texas” Perry said.
