Cheney 'struck' by popularity of Texas politicians

Former Vice President Dick Cheney said he thinks presidential candidate Gov. Rick Perry's (R) Texan style has attracted people to his campaign.

"I was always struck by the extent to which the rest of the country is attracted to Texas and Texas politicians," Cheney said on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday.

Cheney lived in Texas for five years while working in the private sector as CEO of Halliburton.

He commented on his time in the state saying, "There's just a different feel to it. It's the West. There's a strong sense of independence and a little bit of arrogance, maybe."

Cheney also weighed in on the Republican presidential field and his new memoir, In My Time, during the interview.
