Could another Texas Governor gallup up to the Presidential trough? Some GOP political operatives in the Lone Star state are whispering about their guy - Governor Rick Perry. But I gotta say - doesn't he look like a younger version of Mitt? Just askin'.
As many grass-roots Republicans remain in search of a conservative candidate with the pizazz to go toe-to-toe against President Obama, a man from deep in the heart of Texas who was tea party before the tea party was cool appears to be giving the presidential race some thought.
Gov. Rick Perry has insisted on multiple occasions that he has no interest in the presidency, but RCP has learned that political associates have begun to nose around quietly on Perry's behalf.
