Gov. Rick Perry expresses his continued support for Newt Gingrich and offers advice on what he needs to do to improve.
Everyday we ask influential politicos to send us their top three bullet points that are driving the day's conversation in and outside Washington:
RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:
– Tonight, live from Mesa, AZ, the Republican candidates will fly to the moon to battle Satan. Or something like that. Expect fireworks!
– Mitt Romney got attacked a lot on twitter today. That's not unusual. What is unusual is that it was his supporters doing the attacking, saying his presentation of his new, new tax plan sounded too much like Barack Obama.
– A group of Christian ministers sent out a mass letter saying the GOP should lay off the Obama/religion talk. The signatories make up the more liberal wing of the church and outnumbered by the evangelicals, who largely agree with the candidates. For perspective, the Southern Baptist Church has about as many members as all the mainline protestant denominations combined. And, I'm pretty sure the SBC membership would agree more with Franklin Graham than the National Council of Churches.
