Republican Governors Association
No fewer than a half-dozen potential presidential candidates are gathering in Florida as the Republican Governors Association prepares to select its next leader.
Gov. Rick Perry has raised nearly $103 million in campaign contributions from his first inauguration as governor in 2001 through 2010.
Governor Rick Perry continued to stir speculation Tuesday that he would seek the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, championing Texas’ economy before a packed GOP gathering in New York and telling a television interviewer he would engage in a “thought process” before deciding whether to join the field.
Gov. Rick Perry’s spokesman says the newly re-elected Texas leader expects to be selected next week as chairman of Republican Governors Association.
