Perry’s son discusses father’s campaign, says he never expected it to happen

(By Caroline May, The Daily Caller) - The first son of Texas is out to make the case that his father, Gov. Rick Perry, should be the next President of the United States.

Griffin Perry, the elder of the governor’s two children and a 2006 Vanderbilt graduate, left his job at Deutsche Bank to join his father’s campaign at the beginning of October.

In an interview with The Daily Caller, Perry explained that his role in the campaign has largely been as a surrogate for his father — meeting people and attending events that his father and mother are unable make.

According to Perry, he never thought his father would run for president.
