Texas Gov. Rick Perry will become the latest GOP luminary to endorse U.S. Senate candidate Steve Lonegan.
Perry is set to endorse the former Bogota mayor at an Oct. 1 event, joining Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Gov. Chris Christie on Lonegan’s list of endorsements.
Perry was for a short time among the frontrunners for the GOP presidential nomination, but faded and eventually endorsed nominee Mitt Romney.
BuzzFeed was the first to report Perry’s scheduled appearance.
