Debates were a weak spot for Gov. Rick Perry on the presidential campaign trail, but he’s not finished with them. Spokesman Ray Sullivan told Fox News Friday, Perry will be in the spin room for Newt Gingrich after a CNN debate in Mesa, Ariz. next week. Perry endorsed Gingrich during his speech when he dropped out of the race on January 19.

Gov. Perry has proven he still wants to be involved in the presidential race. But, he hasn’t been very active in his support for Gingrich. Perry has sent out a few emails on the former speaker’s behalf, but failed to mention Gingrich in his CPAC address or at public events in Central Texas.

The debate airs on CNN at 7 pm. It is co-hosted by the Arizona Republican Party.
