AUSTIN (AP) - Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry says any future legal bills he incurs fighting two felony indictments will be paid for with campaign funds, not taxpayer dollars.

Perry has spent $80,000 in public funds on the case so far, and has retained a high-powered team of attorneys moving forward.

But spokeswoman Lucy Nashed said Thursday that further legal bills would come out of campaign coffers. She says she didn’t know if there were plans to reimburse the state for Perry’s past legal expenses.

The governor isn’t seeking re-election, but may run again for president in 2016. As of June 30, he had $4 million-plus in campaign funds.

Perry was indicted last week by a grand jury in Austin on coercion and official oppression. He calls the case as a political ploy.
