CHICAGO (Reuters) – Republican White House hopeful Rick Perry has at least some supporters in the Democratic stronghold of Chicago — President Barack Obama’s re-election team.

The Texas governor, a social and fiscal conservative, is seen by Obama’s top election fundraisers, supporters and senior Democrats close to the campaign as easier to beat than the more moderate Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election.

“I was praying Perry would get in the race,” said a former White House aide closely linked to Obama’s campaign.
