Perry is a nice catch but Romney is busy too, collecting a number of Christian conservatives and Florida Congressman Connie Mack (son of the former and very popular Senator). These endorsements do matter at some level –transmitting to Christian conservatives in Romney’s case, and southern conservatives more generically, in Rudy’s case, that “the guy is ok.” It gets a media moment and a helpful surrogate. What do we hear from Fred Thompson? He tells us… are you sitting down… that he raised more money in Texas[ Tennessee too?] than any other candidate. (Well, it’s hard when you don’t have many appearances or endorsements to make news so you work with what you’ve got.) But Thompson also sends around a nice piece on “don’t tax the internet” on Club for Growth conference day.
