BETTENDORF, Iowa (AP) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry, looking to breathe new life into his bid for the Republican nomination, opened an Iowa campaign telling activists not to settle for a candidate who will just propose incremental change.
Perry told about 300 activists that he is proposing a fundamental overhaul over all three branches of government. He told them none of the other Republicans seeking the nomination offer that kind of sweeping change.
He says one part of his plan will be to change the way the federal courts work, saying he’s tired of judges he described as “arrogant.”
The Texas Republican said other candidates offer lots of rhetoric on conservative issues, but he has a decade-long record of delivering on them as governor.
