Former Texas Gov. Perry to announce presidential aims on June 4

Former Republican Governor of Texas Rick Perry points during his speech at the Freedom Summit in Greenville, South CarolinaBy Andy Sullivan WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former Texas Governor Rick Perry will announce whether he will mount a second bid for president in the November 2016 election at a Dallas event on June 4, an aide said on Friday. The longest-serving governor in the history of Texas, Perry has worked to overhaul his image since his 2012 Republican candidacy fell apart in an embarrassing debate performance that became infamous as his “oops moment.” Perry has presented himself since then as a more thoughtful, policy-oriented candidate with a solid record of job creation. Wearing his now-ubiquitous thick-framed glasses, Perry has spent the past several months arguing his efforts to keep taxes low and boost the energy sector in the nation’s third-largest state from 2000 to 2014 were a central reason that Texas added 2.2 million jobs during that period.
