Petition: Secure the Border

If you are like Gov. Rick Perry, and you agree the federal government must take responsibility and secure our border, sign this petition.

Momentum: UT Poll.


In classical mechanics, momentum is defined as mass multiplied by velocity. In political campaigns, momentum could be defined as the past few weeks for the Texans for Rick Perry campaign.

Yesterday, the campaign announced fundraising totals from June 22-30. We raised more than $450 thousand dollars online in just 9 days thanks to folks like you who contributed securely and spread the word through your personal fundraising pages. In this short window of time, the Perry campaign raised more than $4.2 million and will report more than $9.3 million cash-on-hand.

This fundraising news came on the heels of news from June 24 of a 12-point lead for Governor Perry in the Texas Lyceum poll.

This morning, the University of Texas released its June statewide survey confirming the Governor's 12-point lead in Texas Lyceum. The latest UT poll is also a big improvement for Governor Perry from the March UT Poll. That is momentum.

A record-breaking fundraising effort, two 12-point leads in a three week span, and a growing number of people signing up on Governor Perry's team. That is real, powerful momentum. Help us keep it going. Become a supporter of Governor Perry on Facebook, become a Perry Home Headquarters and sign up your friends and family as committed Perry supporters, get your own personal campaign fundraising page. As always, get updates first on Twitter: follow @GovernorPerry for updates straight from Rick Perry, and follow @GovPerry2010 for updates from the campaign.

Please, do what you can to help us keep the campaign headed in the right direction. We'll only be able to take this momentum to the next level with your continued enthusiasm and support.
