Rick Perry recently suspended his fresh bid for president. So did Wisconsin's Scott Walker.
But there was a time Perry was the frontrunner for his party's presidential nomination.
This reminder comes courtesy of Karl Rove, the Texas-tied consultant, who says the leader in the race for the 2012 Republican nod changed seven times between September 2011 and the end of February 2012. PunditFact found that five individual candidates, including Perry, handed the lead around.
