Rick Perry: I'm a proven conservative in the Fla tradition of Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio'



Recorded messages from Rick Perry are hitting the homes of Florida Republicans who have requested absentee ballots:

Hi, this is Gov. Rick Perry calling absentee ballot voters in Florida to tell you I'm in this race to win it and to ask for your vote. Floridians can send a message to Washington: We're tired of Obama, sky high unemployment, too big to fail bailouts. Our party's the conservative party and we should govern conservatively. I'm a proven conservative in the Florida tradition of Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. As president I'll protect life and defend traditional marriage. I'm proud to be a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association, and I'll appoint judges that strictly interpret the constitution, not legislate from the bench. As governor of Texas we lead the nation in job creation and as president I'll get this country working again. This is a call to arms for all conservatives. Please vote for me, Rick Perry. When you cast your absentee ballot, together we can repeal Obamacare and take a wrecking ball to washington D.C. Thank you and God bless you.
