Sarah Palin also went to Texas this weekend 

Sarah Palin did more this weekend than just speak at the Tea Party Convention. She also went to Houston to stump for Republican Gov. Rick Perry's re-election campaign. Perry currently leads the field for the Republican nomination, with a recent Rasmussen poll showing him at 44 percent, ahead of Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (29 percent) and conservative activist Debra Medina (16 percent).


"I look forward to Texas sending a message on how things get done, because you're doing them right in Texas," said Palin.

Palin says she supports Perry over the other candidates for Texas Governor, because he's a fiscal conservative with proven leadership.

"In Washington, they're too often looking out for Wall Street and Rick is looking out for you,'' Palin said. ''So remember, on March 2nd you have a clear choice. What's it going to be? I want to hear you Texas. The way they operate in D.C. or the way y'all get things done in Texas?"

Palin's visit is designed in part to put a damper on Medina's support and help Perry avoid a run-off.

The Examiner will have special coverage of the three-way Texas primary election, for which early voting begins Feb. 16.
