Sen. Gaetz endorses Rick Perry, again



UPDATE: The campaign released the endorsement today, though Gaetz previously announced his support on Facebook. Now it's here on the Buzz for all its glory.

"No one is better prepared to get America back on track," future Florida Senate President Don Gaetz said in a statement. "With 29 electoral votes, Florida could well be the turning point state in presidential politics this year. President Obama knows he has to win Florida or lose the election. Rick Perry has the best chance among Republicans to carry Florida and win the Presidency.”

Perry last week snagged the backing of House Speaker Dean Cannon.
