Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry visits Granite State
After a disastrous run for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, Rick Perry tried to cast himself as a patriotic comeback by visiting New Hampshire for the first time after announcing his candidature for the upcoming presidential race.
Addressing a gathering at Nashua Community College in the Granite State, Perry pledged to work for veterans by reforming the Department of Veterans Affairs if he is elected as the next president of the United States.
The former Texas governor said he would work for veterans until he took his "last breath."
Pledging to work for veterans, he said, "If you elect me your president, there will be an individual that goes to the Oval Office every day, committed to the military men and women and to the veterans of this country. It won't be an afterthought."
Speaking more generally about the U.S. military force's overseas roles, he said that when a war becomes a necessity then the nation should fight with "crushing power" then return home. He also said that a decline in the corporate tax rate would pave way for more jobs and higher wages for workers.
Perry and his wife Anita were joined onstage by a number of high profile supporters, including author Marcus Luttrell, his twin brother Morgan Luttrell, and author Brad Thor.
