Former Gov. Rick Perry of Texas is expected to formally enter the Republican race for president Thursday. Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry launched his presidential campaign four years ago as an instant front-runner — a proven job-creator with solid conservative credentials, formidable fundraising prowess and perhaps enough cowboy swagger to take Republicans by storm. A senior adviser to Perry tells The Associated Press that the former governor will make the widely expected announcement that he’s in the 2016 race on Thursday in Dallas.

 

 

  • Lately, Perry has traveled to Iowa, which kicks off presidential nomination voting, more than any GOP White House candidate.
  • Perry left office in January after a record 14 years as governor.
  • Perry’s camp notes that many past Republican candidates, including Mitt Romney in 2012, rebounded to win the party’s presidential nomination after failing in a previous bid.
