Rick Perry shrugged off his fellow southern state governor, South Carolina’s Nikki Haley, deciding to back rival Mitt Romney, in an interview with CNN’s John King.

“That’s one vote, I’ll be real honest with you, I’ve got a medal of honor recipient Jim Livingston, who endorsed me on the deck of the Yorktown last week, and you know, no offense but I like those guys that have that type of long-time record of endorsements,” said Perry, according to POLITICO’s Emily Schultheis. “I greatly respect Gov. Haley, but if I had to pick between the two, love having those veterans stand up and say this is the guy, this is the man for the job.”

Perry also again dinged Ron Paul for suggesting that there is no real evidence Iran is moving to acquire nukes, saying, “There should be no space between the United States and Israel, and I was just really taken aback by Ron Paul’s almost nonchalant statement about, you know, let the mullahs go, there’s not any evidence that they’re getting a bomb.
