Unable to gain any traction in the Republican race, former Gov. Rick Perry of Texas bowed out of the battle for the GOP nomination on Friday, taking one more round of shots at GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.
“We have a tremendous field – the best in a generation – so I step aside knowing our party is in good hands,” Perry said in a speech.
"Today I step aside knowing as long as we fight for the cause of conservatism, our nation is in good hands." – @GovernorPerry
