GREENVILLE, S.C. — Former Gov. Rick Perry is joining a new group that plans to organize veterans in support of Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign. 

The group, a super PAC known as Keep the Promise to Veterans, will allow Perry to ramp up his involvement in Cruz’s presidential effort after endorsing the U.S. senator from Texas last month. Perry, an Air Force veteran, has already recruited some supporters of his own to help with the super PAC: former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer and Taya Kyle, the widow of Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle.

“As you know, Governor Perry’s passionate about veterans issues and he wants to make sure that veterans issues do not get lost in the discourse and decided that getting involved this way would be an ideal way to keep veterans issues at the forefront,” said Kathy Walt, the treasurer of the super PAC and a former chief of staff to Perry. 

Keep the Promise to Veterans was officially formed Thursday, according to records with the Federal Election Commission. It is listed as affiliated with three other pro-Cruz super PACs organized under the Keep the Promise umbrella.

    The creation of the group comes with just over a week to go until the first-in-the-South primary here in the Palmetto State, home to a large military and veteran population. Perry has said he plans to stump for Cruz in the state ahead of the Feb. 20 nominating contest.
