MANCHESTER, Iowa (AP) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry is calling the Wall Street bailout "the single biggest act of theft in American history.
Campaigning in Iowa on Monday, Perry sought to cast himself as an outsider who would cut Washington's influence. He painted Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney, his rivals for the GOP presidential nomination, as status quo politicians who should worry Republicans voters.
Perry says the country needs a president who understands Main Street and is not beholden to Wall Street.
