Texas Home Mogul, GOP Donor Bob Perry has died

You may not have known him, but you definitely know his work. According to the Houston Chronicle, Home builder and tireless political contributor Bob Perry passed away this weekend at his Nassau Bay home. He was 80. As far as I know, he is no relation to Texas Governor Rick Perry, though given his long history of contributions to the Governor’s political campaigns, they clearly had some things in common. Perry is perhaps best known for donating to the infamous “Swift Boat” campaign again John Kerry during his 2004 Presidential run, but he has long been a trusted advocate of Republican politicians and causes.
