NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — GOP presidential frontrunner and Texas Governor Rick Perry is coming to the Big Apple on Monday.

“And it’s something that I kept pretty quiet, because I just wanted it to happen. I don’t know how 1010 WINS got a hold of the information, but you did, and I’m not going to deny it,” Mateo told 1010 WINS’ Glenn Schuck.

“It’s a first for us, at least during my lifetime, I’ve never seen a presidential candidate coming into our community. Not as a candidate, nevertheless as president,” Mateo added.

Perry will attend two fund-raisers as well. He gets in Monday morning and is here until Tuesday night.

It will be Perry’s second trip to New York City in recent days. On Wednesday, he had dinner with Donald Trump at Trump Tower.

    If any you are seriously considering supporting Perry you need to get your head checked!! This criminal has lived like Midas in TX i the last 10 years. I lived there during much of that time and I cannot tell you what a hypocritical/two faced crook this guy is! He’s worse than Bush..and they are big time rivals..yea..imagine that. He is bought and paid for 100% and knows how to manipulate people. He is has no business being in INWOOD, unless of course you are 100% in favor of gentrification …! Can you people not see how fake he is? wow.

    Rick Perry works for me. And I must say, if somehow the lunatic fringe/Bilderberg sect of the left wing managed to push Paul over the line, I’d write Perry in.

    “But Al Qaeda TOLD US why they bombed us….and we should really launch an investigation into what realllllly happened on 9/11….” Right. I call him Hanoi Ron.

    DR Ron Will Prevail

    Perry is a continuation of the Bush / Obama 2 Party Paradigm of phony crony capitalism that brought us to the peril we are in.

    Make No Mistake.
