Marc Ambinder reports that Texas Gov. Rick Perry, President Bush’s successor, will endorse Rudy Giuliani in the morning. Having a southern social conservative onboard is obviously a boost, especially if it kind of breaks the taboo and makes other social conservatives come out for him. Perry also received a B in Cato’s 2006 fiscal policy report card, the second highest score handed out.
Perry was a guest at The American Spectator‘s Newsmaker Breakfast last November, and discussed immigration.
