Tea Party Bloggers: Perry for President!

GOP heavyeights are jumping on the Romney bandwagon in order to stop Newt Gingrich, but the true believers are staging a mutiny: bloggers at the influential Tea Party-leaning website RedState co-signed a statement of support for Rick Perry. "We have the chance to nominate a conservative for president and win the White House in 2012. We can fumble that chance away by settling for a nominee we can’t trust to pursue conservative policies in office, or we can make a stand for the best, most conservative potential president in the field." The signatories do not include RedState editor Erick Erickson, who has also warned against nominating Romney and signaled possible support for Jon Huntsman.
