Calling the Rick Perry 20

Posted By on Mon, Oct 3, 2011 at 10:42 AM

I sent e-mails this morning to the 20 Arkansas Republican legislators who wrote the letter that encouraged Rick Perry to run for the White House. They said they stood "ready to assist you in any way." This was a followup to a Twitter I sent to Republican legislators, before the latest reporting on an unfortunately named hunting camp in Perry's past.

I'll report on the results. But, so far, no response from the 20:

David J. Sanders, Charlie Collins, Duncan Baird, Lane Jean, Bruce Westerman, Andrea Lea, Jane English, Ann Clemmer, Justin Harris, Nate Bell, Mark Biviano, Allen Kerr, Prissy Hickerson, David Meeks, Jon Woods, Stephen Meeks, Josh Johnson, Gary Stubblefield, Kim Hammer, Bruce Cozart.

UPDATE:

* Bruce Westerman: I still support Governor Perry for the same reasons outlined in the June 13th letter.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
