AUSTIN (KXAN) – So far Governor Rick Perry has said he’s only “thinking” about running for president – but his campaign seems to be in motion.
“The Texas of the 21st century must be a place that invites all – a place where vivid dreams and bold ideas await their realization. My vision is not to merely celebrate that progress but to advance it,” the Perry says in a clip from 2000 that is featured in a new video that rivals a Hollywood trailer made by Texans For Rick Perry.
According to the Washington Post, Perry showed the video to about 600 potential donors. The Governor spoke with the Post for about 90 minutes yesterday.The main theme: Perry has changed from his failed 2012 presidential run.
The Governor said after a “humiliating defeat,” some politicians would quote “scurry off to the quietness and the comfort of some obscure place.” Perry says he wasn’t interested in doing that.
