Democratic strategist James Carville predicted the next GOP presidential nominee will come from Texas.

"It's either going to be Ted Cruz or Rick Perry," Carville said Monday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity."

Cruz is a freshman senator from Texas and a tea party favorite, and Perry is serving out his last term as Texas governor. Perry ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012 but came up short after a few fumbles on the campaign trail.

But Perry has advantages, Carville said.

"He's been around the track once, and he can raise a bucketload of money," Carville said of Perry. "He can accidentally hit his speed dial and raise $5 million."

Carville said Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker all have a chance.

Paul's father, former Rep. Ron Paul, ran for president in 2012 and got 21 percent of the vote in Iowa.

"You got to almost assume that Rand Paul can build on that, at least duplicate that," Carville said.
