Much of Twitter heard former Texas Gov. Rick Perry say “Ronald Raven” tonight at the GOP “Happy Hour debate” preceding the main event in Cleveland, and the jokes went wild.
“Americans are tired of hearing this debate want to go to ‘What are you going to do about illegal immigration”?'” Perry said. “For 30 years this country has been baited with that. All the way back to when Ronald Raven signed a piece of legislation that basically allowed for amnesty for over 4 million people and the border is still not secure.”
But Perry’s campaign spokeswoman, Lucy Nashed, said Perry did not have another oops moment and “clearly said Ronald Reagan.”
