Perry Could Run For President In 2012

A spokesman for Governor Rick Perry is trying to back-pedal from the Governor's claims this morning that he would consider running for president in 2012.

The spokesman commented today that Perry has "no intention of running for president," but he will not comment on why the Governor has neglected to back up those claims in public.

Earlier today, Perry announced at a bill-signing ceremony that he would considering entering the race for the Republican nomination after the Texas Legislature adjourns on Monday.

Rick Perry has been in office for a decade, making him the longest serving Chief Executive in Texas history.

Perry is also a darling for the Tea Party.
