(CNN) - A bid for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination could be in Rick Perry's future, the Texas governor told CNN's Wolf Blitzer Friday.
"Our legislature will be leaving in approximately 55 days," Perry said on "The Situation Room," adding that "at that particular point in time, I'll sit down with friends and family and make a decision about 2016."
"So you're obviously open to that notion?" Blitzer asked
"Indeed," was the Republican governor's response.
Perry made a bid for the 2012 GOP nomination, but his candidacy was derailed after he couldn't remember a key portion of his platform; namely, which federal agencies he would eliminate if elected president.
