Newscast Media HOUSTON—As expected, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced today that he will be running for president.


With a transformed image, Perry told his supporters, "We’re at the end of an era of failed leadership. We are a resilient country. We’ve been through a civil war, two world wars, the Great Depression... we even made it through Jimmy Carter. We will make it through the Obama years,” the longest-serving governor in Texas said.


With a track record of having balanced the budget for 14 years and creating over two million new jobs, Perry is perhaps the most experienced of all the candidates running, in terms of building a strong economy, and has catapulted Texas to being the 12th largest economy in the world.

Perry also served in the U.S. Air Force flying C-130 tactical airlift aircraft in Europe and the Middle East, which makes him appealing to the serving military and retired veterans.

"The question of every candidate will be this one: when have you led?” Mr. Perry told his supporters. "Leadership is not a speech on the Senate floor. It's not what you say. It's what you do. And we will not find the kind of leadership needed to revitalize the country by looking to the political class in Washington."

Perry ended his announcement by saying, "We will make it through the Obama years... It's time...I am running for the presidency of the United States of America."

This is Perry's second time to run for president.    Add Comments>>
