Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who has surpassed Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney in several recent polls, attracted another key backer Wednesday. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., announced his support for Perry, the Tulsa World reports.


"I called Rick Perry a year ago and told him, 'If you're running for president, I'll be the first to endorse you,'" Inhofe said at a State Chamber of Commerce breakfast at the Tulsa Press Club.
"I'm going to be that person on Monday."


Inhofe said he likes Romney, “but he's a little mushy on environmental issues," and "Newt Gingrich, I always have this vision of him sitting on the couch holding hands with Nancy Pelosi."


Perry has the best chance of any Republican to defeat President Barack Obama, Inhofe said.
