Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) is brushing off former Vice President Dick Cheney’s endorsement of Perry’s primary challenger, U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison — saying he’d rather have his current support from Sarah Palin.
Perry touted an upcoming endorsement from Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, as evidence of Republican support. Perry was then asked if he would rather have Cheney or Palin, who endorsed him back in February.
Perry’s response: “I think I’d stick with Sarah.”
