A major endorsement Tuesday for Texas Governor Rick Perry. Democrat Dan Morales threw his support behind his Republican former opponent. "My devotion and love for my state demands that I place politics and partisanship aside in favor of supporting the candidate in this campaign whose election would clearly be in the best interest of the people of Texas. That candidate is Rick Perry," said Dan Morales, former candidate for Texas governor.
Morales is a former Texas State Attorney General. He lost to democratic nominee Tony Sanchez in his party's primary back in March. A spokesperson for Sanchez says Tuesday's endorsement will not help Perry, saying quote: "Dan (Morales) is irrelevant to this race. He has been rejected by Texas voters."
