Perry, a Republican, is running for President of the United States.
Perry was in Spencer and Clear Lake earlier in the day.
Perry was introduced by Cerro Gordo County Republican Chairman John Rowe, who introduced Perry as “America’s jobs governor.”
Perry told an enthusiastic crowd that President Obama “did an experiment on America” referring to stimulus programs that went into affect in his term and the “massive debt” that has ensued. He said the stimulus programs “failed miserably.”
“We must elect a President that has the courage… to get America back working again,” Perry said.
Perry briefly mentioned a 20% flat tax that he endorses, as well.
