Rick Perry Drops Out, Takes Final Shot at Trump

Rick Perry has become the first Republican candidate to drop out of the race for the presidential nomination, as had been predicted by many.

Governor Perry couldn’t resist a parting shot at frontrunner Donald Trump, whose success so far in the race clearly got under Perry’s skin.

On his Facebook page, he briefly expressed his conservative philosophy in a post that appeared to include veiled references to Trump. Perry wrote:
