Report: Perry Would Welcome Christie into 2012 Presidential Race

Texas Gov. Rick Perry thinks New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is a "great competitor" and would welcome him into the race for the Republican nomination for president, according to an Associated Press report on Saturday.

"I see anybody that gets in the race that believes in America and is a small government but efficient government individual, I would welcome into the race. It just strengthens the point that the Republican Party's all about getting our country working again. Whoever that is," Perry told the AP.

 

Perry's comments on the same day that he finished second place in the Florida straw poll and amid reports that Chrisie is again weighing a run.

"I'm also a big believe in these governors being freed up to be able to compete against each other. Chris Christie is a great competitor — and I'll be up there, you know, in Jersey, looking for some businesses to move to Texas," Perry said, according to the AP.
