Since American Sniper became the highest grossing film of 2014, conservatives have rallied behind the family of Chris Kyle like never before. Over the last few months, the endorsement of Kyle’s widow, Taya, has been highly coveted among the GOP candidate.
Taya, however, has remained silent about who she will be supporting in the next election: until now.
The widow of Chris Kyle has just announced that she will be supporting former Texas Governor Rick Perry in the 2016 presidential race. She endorsed Perry in an email she sent to the press:
“One of the greatest things my husband, Chris Kyle, ever did was move our family to Texas. […] I got to know Rick and Anita Perry outside of the public eye, where I’ve had an up-close view of their humility and commitment to doing the right thing for people regardless of who gets the credit. Believe me, they are a breath of fresh air in a political system full of people playing games and twisting the truth.”
“I’m tired of the smoke and mirrors, I’m tired of the high glossy prints and everything that people want you to see, I want to know from a leader who they really are as a person, and that’s why I’m here talking about [Perry],” she added.
Taya’s endorsement will be a huge boost for Perry, as millions of Americans respect her opinion since she is the widow of an American hero. Taya also made it clear that Perry is a true man of God.
“I like somebody who feels like they answer to a higher power,” she concluded.
