What’s your name and where are you from?
My name is Reid King, and I’m from Denton, Texas.

I notice you have your pro-life buttons on. What do you think of the whole Todd Akin dust-up?
To be honest, I haven’t been paying a whole lot of attention to it because for the past week I’ve actually been here working in the committee meetings for the rules and credentials and all of that.

What did you think of Rick Perry’s run for president?
I think it was fairly embarrassing for the state of Texas. 

Are you a Romney supporter?
I am a pledged delegate to Romney, yes. 

Who was your preferred candidate in Texas?
I had another one that I would have preferred, but most of the people in Texas did, so.

Who was that?
For me, it was Ron Paul.
