Perry says eliminate 3 agencies, can't name them
Perry pledges to eliminate 3 federal agencies but fails to remember their names during debate
By The Associated Press

ROCHESTER, Mich. (AP) ' Republican presidential hopeful Rick Perry says he would eliminate three federal agencies. Just don't ask him to name them.

The Texas governor on Wednesday night struggled during a debate with his rivals and said he would nix the Commerce and Education departments. He drew a blank when the moderator asked what the third agency would be.

Perry previously has called on the elimination of the Energy Department.

Perry is only saying "oops" for drawing a blank on a favorite subject of criticism on the campaign trail.

He has struggled at previous debates and although he's committed to four more, his advisers are considering skipping future ones.
