Is Perry's Presidential Campaign Over?


 

ROCHESTER, Michigan – Following Rick Perry's disastrous debate performance last night, the biggest question is whether Perry can recover and continue to raise money to stay in the race. Perry emphatically pronounced the three federal agencies he would eliminate his first day in office, "Commerce, Education and the uh.....the third agency of government I would do away with... Education, the, uh, Commerce, and...I can't. The third one, I can't. Sorry. Oops."

 

Given Perry's declining poll numbers over the past several weeks, last night's debate performance could come as the final blow to the Texas governor's presidential ambitions. 

 

Share your thoughts: Is Rick Perry's campaign over? Does he have any chance of recovering from his debate blunder? Will Mitt Romney now become the GOP nominee?
