Nearing presidential announcement, Rick Perry says he’ll run on his record
Could the self-described “most conservative” Republican presidential candidate run and win in California? Rick Perry says he could, and plans to should he win his party’s nomination.
The Texas governor is expected to formally announce his candidacy in the next week, a process that will begin with stops in the early-voting states of South Carolina and New Hampshire on Saturday.
In a new interview with Time magazine’s Mark Halperin, Perry said he’s now getting comfortable with the notion that “this is what I’m supposed to be doing.”
“I’ve got the calmness in my heart,” he said.
I’ve got the calmness in my heart? I will personally drag everyone I know to the polls in California to prove you wrong. The only thing worse than Perry would be a Perry-Bachmann ticket.
