According to national media
reports today, Monday, August 8, Governor Rick Perry will soon make it very clear that he plans to run for president.
The governor is scheduled to speak at the “Red State” gathering in South Carolina Saturday, and according to reports, he will make his intentions known.
From there, Gov. Perry will travel to New Hampshire.
I sent an email to the governor’s spokesman, Mark Miner, as soon as the media frenzy began.
This is the response I received. You be the judge:
“The Governor is not a candidate for Office at this time. With President Obama’s dismal economic record, and Texas’ success in creating jobs and balancing our budget, Governor Perry continues to consider a potential run for The White House. Stay tuned.”
