Texas Gov. Rick Perry has sped to the front of the GOP candidate pack with an unmatched confidence based upon what some consider his greatest asset: his campaign team.


Perry’s politically savvy campaign team boasts an undefeated record that sets him apart from the rest of the major candidates, reports The Daily Beast.


Led by veteran New Hampshire operative Dave Carney, Perry’s campaign team is shrewd and extremely talented in the science of campaigning, according to The Daily Beast.


“This is a team that does not go with gut instinct or seat of the pants,” insists Mike Baselice, Perry’s pollster of two decades. “It’s empirical-research driven.”


And Perry’s team is emphatic that nothing about the campaign strategy is based solely on convention. “Just because something has been done a certain way before doesn’t mean that’s the way it should be done again,” said Perry spokesman Mike Miner.


Part of what makes Perry’s team so effective is its ability to act largely unconstrained by the politician, according to The Daily Beast. “There are candidates out there who like to design their own direct-mail pieces,” Baselice said jokingly.

Perry trusts his team to do its job so that he can go out and meet voters, Baselice said.


The core team has been together for 20 years or more, and this shows in the team’s effectiveness and efficiency.


“This is a team that knows what Perry wants and knows how to get him where he wants to be,” Baselice said.
