Rick Perry Drops Out of Presidential Race, Endorses Newt Gingrich

(Fox Nation) - Rick Perry dropped out of the presidential race Thursday and endorsed Newt Gingrich, a decision that comes just two days before the South Carolina Republican primary.

"I've always believed the mission is greater than the man," Perry said.

The Texas governor offered a brief but robust endorsement of former House speaker Gingrich on his way out of the race, calling him a "conservative visionary." While Perry is polling only in single digits in South Carolina, his endorsement could make a difference in the tightening contest if his supporters gravitate toward a particular candidate.

"Newt is not perfect, but who among us is? The fact is there is forgiveness for those who seek God. And I believe in the power of redemption," Perry said. "I have no question that Newt Gingrich has the heart of a conservative reformer, the ability to rally and captivate the conservative movement."
