Texas Governor Rick Perry has received his first ringing endorsement from one of his own, the Texas Dolly poker icon Doyle Brunson.
On his Twitter page as a response to one of his 383,000 plus followers, Brunson wrote:
“Governor Perry is running for Pres. What do you think?..I think he will be a great president, hope he gets elected!”
The Republican announced he would be running for President of the United States on Saturday, promising more jobs and less Government intrusion. Perry is considered the co-favorite to win the GOP nomination along with former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.
"I will work every day to make Washington, D.C., as inconsequential in your lives as I can," Mr. Perry said.
Perry made his announcement in South Carolina, then quickly traveled to New Hampshire and Iowa.
Texas has created the largest number of jobs in the US under the Perry administration.
