Texas Gov. Rick Perry traveled to Kentucky on Saturday to offer his backing to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Speaking at the West Kentucky Lincoln-Reagan Dinner, Perry outlined three traits of politicians he supports:

“Leaders who devolve power to the states and not rob them of it.

“Leaders who believe in free markets and not a bigger federal government.

“Leaders like Mitch McConnell who have the courage to stand up for conservative principals, even when it means standing up to the leader of the free world,” he said, according to a press release from McConnell’s campaign.

And he remembered all three traits.

Perry then called for the Republicans to flip seven seats and elect McConnell as majority leader “and send Harry Reid to the backbench where he belongs,” the campaign said.

Perry, like U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, of Kentucky, is considering running for president in 2016.

McConnell faces Louisville businessman Matt Bevin in the May Republican primary. The Associated Press reported that Bevin attended the dinner but was not allowed to speak.
