Dear Gov. Perry,
I think we've both realized that you won't be president at this point, but could you please stick around for another month or so?
Falling in the polls, Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry can’t afford to discount all voters between 18 and 21 years old. But that’s what he seemed to do in a speech today at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College.
At the end of his stump speech at a town hall meeting, Perry said, “Those of you that will be 21 by November the 12th, I ask for your support and your vote. Those of you who won’t be, work hard.”
The legal voting age is 18, not 21. The date of the 2012 general election is Nov. 6.
