Don't miss Hannity, tonight at 10p ET, as Sean sits down with Rick Perry for the full hour to discuss the former governor's message and what he thinks of the other GOP hopefuls.


The widow of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle was on “America’s Newsroom” today to explain why she’s endorsing former Texas Gov. Rick Perry for president in 2016.

Taya Kyle endorsed Perry in a recent email, writing:

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.

Kyle said that Perry and his family have shown her their character, describing them as good people who care about veterans and everyday Americans. Although Kyle said she’s not interested in politics, she said that Perry’s character is what made her want to speak out on his behalf.

“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 said.

When Bill Hemmer asked Kyle why she would vote for Perry to lead America, she explained that the former governor knows the military, has a “business mind,” and has economically improved Texas.

She also described him as a Christian man and remarked that she has never seen him force his religion on anyone else.

“I like somebody who feels like they answer to a higher power,” she said.
