Texas Gov. Rick Perry, fresh off a Republican presidential debate in Simi Valley Wednesday night, campaigned in Newport Beach Thursday morning, with a rally at Roger’s Gardens.
The emotional peak of the rally was OC Republican Party Chairman Emeritus Tom Fuentes, who is in the final stages of cancer, leaving his hospice bed to lead the invocation.
After the rally, Perry went across the street to Fashion Island for a private fundraising event. Here are some photos from the Roger’s Gardens rally.
