“President Obama’s big-government, Washington experiment has cost our nation more than 2.3 million jobs,” said Cannon in a statement. “Meanwhile, since just June 2009, Rick Perry’s Texas is responsible for approximately 40 percent of the net new jobs in America.”
Cannon will be choosing the date for the Florida primary, currently set for January 31.
“I know that with Speaker Cannon’s help, we will win Florida’s primary, the Republican nomination, and ultimately, the Presidency,” Perry said in a statement released Wednesday.
