Rick Perry Opens Campaign Store

Just in time for the holiday shopping seasons, the Rick Perry for President campaign has opened an online store.

Got a family member just dying to get a Perry yard sign?  Or maybe you're planning a trip to New Hampshire or Iowa and need somethingfor the cold weather

It's well known that Perry campaign guru (possibly no longer guru) David Carney didn't want Perry's 2010 gubernatorial campaign to spend any money on things like yard signs because he believed there were other, more effective things to spend campaign money on.

But since people would be paying for the signs (or buttons or stickers or caps) that's a different story.

The Perry campaign joins six other major GOP candidates with a campaign store. The only major candidate without one is former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum. His supporters will have to make their own hats.
