BERKELY, SC (WIS) - South Carolina Senator Larry Grooms withdrew his support for Governor Rick Perry Monday and urged him to withdraw his
candidacy for President of the United States.
"I was there when Governor
Perry made his announcement in Charleston and had tremendously high hopes for a
Perry Presidency," said Grooms. "I still believe he would be a great national
leader, but campaigns are tough and early mistakes and missed opportunities
have taken their toll. Now is the time to get out and pass the baton
to another leader that can take the message to the next level."
"With only days to go
before the South Carolina Primary, it is apparent that Governor Perry cannot
win and has no viable strategy in moving forward," continued Grooms. "Remaining in the
race at this point only serves to steer votes away from viable candidates."
Grooms said that it is time for the party to support a single candidate.
