Rick Perry insists it takes a lot more than $5,000 to buy him.
During this week’s GOP presidential debate Michele Bachmann targeted the Texas governor for mandating vaccinations made by a drug company that gave him campaign funds while also hiring his former chief of staff as a lobbyist. His response was, to say the least, a bit awkward.
Noting that he’s raised $30 million in the past, but only $5,000 from that company, Perry told Bachmann, “If you’re saying I can be bought for $5,000, I’m offended.”
In other words, Gov. Perry, you’re offended by any suggestion you come that cheap?
