Monday on The Chad Hasty Show, Matt Mackowiak spoke with Chad about Rick Perry's position in the GOP field of candidates.

About Perry's momentum after his announcement and his powerful speech last week Mackowiak said,

I remain convinced he's an undervalued stock for the Republican primary.

Mackowiak continued,

Very professionally done. The speech itself was, I thought, very positive and hopeful and substantive. Look, he is putting all the pieces together, very, very effectively this time around. He's much better prepared. I think he's more confident, but he's confident really for a reason this time, and he's grown a lot.
