Rick Perry to Decide on Presidential Aspirations By Late 2013

By Bradford Pearson |

From the Washington Post:

Perry spokesman Josh Havens confirmed that Perry will probably announce his 2016 plans in the latter part of 2013.

“He has said that he will first make a decision this summer about running for reelection as governor, then sometime later on in the year he will probably make a decision about 2016,” Havens said.

Deciding on a presidential bid so early in the process would be odd, especially given that Perry could be running for reelection at that point. Politicians who are seeking reelection don’t generally say they will run for another office once they are reelected

The question was prompted by a blog post by The Shark Tank, a Florida politics blog. In a piece today, Perry told the blog to expect an announcement “sometime later in the year about 2016. He might want to take a look at last month’s Public Policy Polling numbers, which had him at one percent in a Republican primary.
