Bettendorf, Iowa (CNN) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry will outline a plan Tuesday to "uproot all three branches of government and overhaul Washington."
Perry will deliver his proposals in a speech in the eastern Iowa city of Bettendorf.
He previewed the broad strokes of his vision Monday evening at a Reagan-themed fundraiser for Republicans in the same town.
It was his first visit to Iowa since an awkward mental stumble in a nationally televised debate last week that sparked concerns among his supporters and donors, threatening to derail his campaign.
Speaking to about 300 GOP activists, Perry promised a dramatic and far-reaching plan to "dismantle" Washington as president and said he will address in detail the problems plaguing the three branches of government.
Perry touched on those branches briefly:
- "Lifetime federal judges who arrogantly rewrite laws from the bench."
- "The permanent bureaucracy of the executive branch, which thwarts the will of the American people to advance a big-government agenda."
- "A Congress that not only spends too much but is in Washington too much."
"Washington doesn't need a new coat of paint," Perry said. "It needs a complete overhaul."
The Texan will be joined at Tuesday's policy speech by Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, a noted conservative and one of Perry's earliest supporters.
