On Morning Joe today, Joe Scarborough pressed Long Island Congressman Peter King about whether a very conservative and publicly-prayerful nominee like Rick Perry could really capture large swaths of swing voters.
“I wouldn’t write him off,” said King, who compared the situation to the nay-saying that greeted Ronald Reagan in 1979. “I’ve met Rick Perry a number of times. He has a dynamic personality. He’s a larger than life character. I think people are going to look at the whole picture.”
