Today Gov. Rick Perry received the endorsement of the Houston Police Retired Officers Association for the general election.

"Gov.

"It is a real honor to receive the endorsement of the dedicated professionals of the Houston Police Retired Officers Association," said Gov. Perry. "These brave men and women have given a life of service and sacrifice to families and communities across our state. They have protected our quality of life for years and I look forward to continue making sure that Texas remains the best state to find a job and raise a family."
