Ron's For Rick
Ahead of this past weekend's Iowa Straw Poll, Tennessee Lieutenant Governor Ron Ramsey practically begged Texas Governor Rick Perry to announce he is running for President. Perry did get in the race, but far too late to participate in the test vote in Ames, Iowa Saturday. In spite of that, Perry still got votes
Despite not having an official presence at the Ames Straw Poll, Governor Perry received 712 votes as a write-in, more raw votes than the so-called national Republican front-runner, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, who finished 7th with 587 votes.
