Rick Perry informally launched his 2012 Presidential campaign with a daylong prayer rally called “The Response.” The American Family Association was deeply involved in this event. The event included a prayer for the conversion of the Jews and involved two people who have made anti-Semitic comments: John Hagee and Mike Bickle. John McCain to disavowed Hagee, due to Hagee commenting that Hitler was a hunter sent by God.

At the Values Voter Summit, Perry received the endorsement and was introduced by Robert Jeffress, who has said Jews are going to hell.
