Perry told reporters at a Wednesday morning press conference that he was able to make peace with Giuliani’s position on abortion by receiving assurance that Giuliani would nominate “strict constructionist” judges like Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito and Chief Justice John Roberts.
“I’ve looked him in the eye,” Perry said. “I’ve asked him the hard questions.”
When asked for an example of those hard questions, Perry said he wanted to know “what type of individuals can I expect … on the Supreme Court?”
Perry said he was “comfortable” with Giuliani’s responses.
