Rick Perry hires Henry Barbour as advisor for 2016 run, Steve Schmidt to legal team

8/6/14, "Skeptics aside, Texas' Perry marching toward 2016," AP, Steve Peoples

"With the help of veteran Republican operative Henry Barbour, Perry has also begun hiring staff in key states to help prepare for a possible run. His travel and staffing is being paid by a nonprofit group, led by his chief political adviser, called Americans for Economic Freedom, which can raise and spend unlimited sums of money without disclosing its donors."

8/26/14, "Steve Schmidt joins Rick Perry's legal team," Politico, Maggie Haberman

"Republican strategist and former John McCain consultant Steve Schmidt has joined the team helping Texas Gov. Rick Perry with the strategy around his indictment, POLITICO has learned.

Schmidt is the latest addition to a team that Perry has been expanding with legal hands....Earlier this week, POLITICO’s Mike Allen reported that Perry had hired former Clinton White House special counsel Mark Fabiani to a team that already included Republican lawyer Ben Ginsberg." via Mark Levin twitter


Comment: Rick Perry has never been an option. If you still support him after his hiring of Henry Barbour you belong in a mental hospital. Steve Schmidt is in the same category as Henry Barbour of course.
