Sorry kids, Rick Perry only wants your vote if you’re more than 21-years-old.
“Those of you that will be 21 by November the 12, I ask for your support and your vote. Those of you who won’t be, just work hard,” the GOP hopeful today told a group of New Hampshire college students, according to NBC News.
That’s fine and dandy, of course. Though, he might want to consider asking voters between the ages of 18 to 21 for their support as well, as they are, in fact, legally allowed to vote per the 26th amendment.
Texas governor also flubbed the date of the general election, which is scheduled for November 6, 2012, not November 12.
Funny things happen to Perry on college campuses. In October, he told members of Dartmouth’s Beta Theta Pi frat house that the Revolutionary War occurred in the 16th century. You know, just 200 years before the colonists fought for independence from England.
