Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry is suspending his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.
"When I gave my life to Christ, I said, 'your ways are greater than my ways. Your will superior to mine.' Today I submit that his will remains a mystery, but some things have become clear. That is why today I am suspending my campaign for the presidency of the United States," Perry's prepared remarks from a Friday speech at the Eagle Forum conference in St. Louis said.
Perry is the first major GOP hopeful to announce he is suspending his bid.
