The Worst Candidate of 2012

The Fix gives the award to Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) "for his remarkably poor presidential campaign."

"Remember back to the late summer of 2011. Perry entered the race with what looked like a straight path to frontrunner status. He was a conservative's conservative with a proven record of doing what he said in Texas. He was a fundraising powerhouse. He had a charisma that former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney lacked. It was all there for the taking. Until, it became clear that the idea of Rick Perry running for president was very different than the reality of Rick Perry running for president."

Runners up: Thad McCotter, Ric Sanchez, Todd Akin, and Pete Hoekstra.
