Des Moines, Iowa (CNN) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry will announce that he is running for president on Saturday in South Carolina, a Republican familiar with the plans told CNN.
Previous reports had indicated that Perry would use a speech at the conservative RedState Gathering in Charleston to make his intentions clear, but would stop short of officially announcing a presidential bid.
But the Republican source told CNN that Perry will be in the Republican presidential race on Saturday.
Nice to see the GOP fanbase has evolved a little... .
NOOOO, not another Texan to screw everything up even more, please say it ain't so.
Great. Another fool from Texas who actually wanted to secede from the United States and now he wants to run it? Really? Hope the GOP has better options than this religious numb skull.
Hey, remember when the Wicked Witch of the East was killed and everyone was overjoyed? But then the other witch came along, and she was even worse than the first one?
Hey, remember when Bush's term ended and everyone was overjoyed? But then another Texas governor came along, and he......
Great news. Will prove a worthy candidate.
Why is CNN holding my post for moderation? NEVER once have I been racist, used cuss words, threats, posted any religious, or anti-religious, sexual insinuations, or any other type of wording that is wrong! I have followed all the Rules of Conduct!
It's official...American are gluttons for punishment and like an abused wife who gets going to back for a beating want to show the world how weak we are. Look at his record as Governor of Texas people...you seriously want this man to run the country?
Is this a joke? He can't fix Texas so he decides to ask everyone to pray to his CHRISTIAN GOD to help him out and now he thinks he can be a president? He can't handle one state but he thinks he will be able to do so with 50? Whoever votes for him must be even dumber then Perry himself.
God help us all...
Rick Perry is a wolf in Sheep's clothing. He is a lair. Would not get in gear for the bill against the TSA in Texas until it was to late.
Ha-ha! The Great White Southern Hope Arrives! LOL! What a joke!
Hallelujah brothers and sisters, I, Rick Perry, have been told by Gawd to run for president. I will pray for all of us (rich people) to be saved! But FIRST, send money.
obama will be re-elcted easy.
Just what the country needs- another C and D student from Texas.
he is nuts.
CNN lies, Rick Perry has not been in the polls because he has never entered the race. See how CNN wants him so bad for us? He is one of thier boys!
Hooray, another republican running for political office, that's as exciting as another democrat running for political office.
He needs to go back to Texas and do the job he was elected to do, and to continue to pray for rain for Texas. I don't want to have this guy win only to be forced to live under TEA-ia Law!!!
So Mr. I'm supposed to be President is finally going to announce the worst kept scret ever. Let me save you some $ Rick, stay in Texas, the nation hasn't recovered from the last C student governor from that state. The press may love you for a minute, couple of weeks after a few gaffs, and your state's 27 billion budget shortfall is fully vetted, you'll be polling in Newt , Santorum territory
As if the Republican party is not muddled we adding another one in Rick Perry another Tea Party darling. who will be the next one? i hope for the Republicans it is not Palin because that will,be the demise of the Republicans. They have to sift now and bring on who there best candidate will be to go against our Democratic president , president Obama. rick Perry is another Texan like George Bush so there is nothing big about him.
Katy Perry for Pres!
Thank you Jesus!!!
May God help us ALL !!!
Who cares. He will just spinter the candidats. His FAR-FAR-FAR Right approach is just what the others need. His pulpit is full of spointers. He may work in Texas but the US Citizenry is done with Presidential Candidates from Texas. Bush and Bush were too much.
God help us all...this man is Satan. If you vote for him you are an idiot.
