57. That's actually true - in TX there are many ultra-religious who found
Perry's "day of prayer" an insult. He is an old-guard repub, more concerned about protecting the wealthy than anything else. He's Methodist, which is traditionally the more liberal of the protestant strains (even down here). I'd worry more about him scrapping Medicare than anything else.
