AUBURN HILLS, MI - Governor Rick Perry stumbled while answering a question at last night's GOP debate. This latest gaffe is being called "deadly" to his presidential campaign. However, Gov. Perry said he's not backing out of the race.
All seven GOP candidates gathered for a debate in Auburn Hills, Michigan, last night. While many expected Herman Cain's sexual harassment scandal to be the focus, the Texas governor stole the show when he struggled to remember one of the three government agencies he would eliminate as president.
"Commerce education, and the, uh, what's the third one there? Let's see...oops," said Gov. Perry.
Perry later remembered the third agency was the Department of Energy.
