Governor Perry On Prez Buzz: “I’m Just Too Busy”
Governor Rick Perry says he is too busy concentrating on the Legislature to think about the presidential buzz around him this week. Perry spoke to reporters Thursday after a speech on turning Austin into a high-tech center.
He said all of his focus was on getting a budget passed by the May 30 deadline. On Wednesday Rush Limbaugh devoted 20 minutes to extolling Perry's virtues as a Republican presidential candidate. The Washington Times also wrote about Perry's potential as a candidate this week. But Perry has repeatedly denied any plans to run for the presidency.
