Is Rick Perry going to suspend his campaign? Certainly after listening to his speech tonight it would appear so. Perry just stated that through prayer and reflection, he will be searching for a path forward. Perry is returning to Texas tonight to sleep on what he may do. I don't think that bodes well for the Texas Governor. Perry is a true champion of conservative ideals. Certainly he would be a better candidate than Romney. Hopefully, if Perry ultimately decides to suspend, my hope is he endorses Gingrich. Gingrich is a better candidate to take on Romney than is Santorum. Gingrich could really use the support from the Texas Governor. I really think in the next day or two it will be a 4 person field. Huntsman has to win New Hampshire (which without a miracle isn't happening) to be viable past next Tuesday. Bachmann probably drops out in a day or two, so that leaves the field Santorum, Romney, Paul, and Gingrich. Paul's support is what it is and that won't be changing. SO in the end the Republicans need to get this down to two viable candidates. With Perry finishing 5th, I pray that Perry endorses Gingrich.
