Texas Governor Rick Perry Says He’s Considering White House Run


Governor Rick Perry told reporters today that he is considering a White House run.
The Statesman reported:

Gov. Rick Perry today gave his strongest indication yet that he may run for president.

“I’m going to think about it” after the legislative session ends Monday, Perry said. He added, “But I think about a lot of things.”

For years, Perry has said that he would not run for president and that he had no interest in the job. He has often said that he has said no to the presidential question in as many ways as he could.

But he and his advisers have inched closer to saying he may run all week, following the announcement that Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels would not enter the GOP field. A couple of days ago, he told Greta Van Susteren on Fox News that a run was tempting.

For the record, Texas has added 732,000 jobs in the last decade. No other state has created over 100,000 jobs.
