Perry's Wife Says God Called Him to Run

Anita Perry reflected on the "rough month" her husband, Rick Perry, has endured on the campaign trail, NBC News reports, and suggested he was being targeted for his evangelical Christian faith.

Said Perry: "We have been brutalized and beaten up and chewed up in the press to where I need this today. We are being brutalized by our opponents, and our own party. So much of that is, I think they look at him, because of his faith. He is the only true conservative -- well, there are some true conservatives. And they're there for good reasons. And they may feel like God called them too. But I truly feel like we are here for that purpose."

She likened her husband's decision to run to encountering a "burning bush," a reference to the Biblical story of Moses receiving a sign from God.
