Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry has committed himself to participate in Florida’s P5 Straw Poll.

The Texas governor and Texas Rep. Ron Paul are the only major candidates to fully commit to the Sept. 24 poll, TampaBay.com reports.

"Gov. Perry is fully committed to participating in P5," said Perry campaign spokesman Ray Sullivan.

"The governor is committed to working hard for the vote in Florida. We have the beginnings of a very good organization in Florida and believe the governor's message will win support in Florida," Sullivan added.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum also are participating. About 3,500 Republican rank-and-file are expected to vote in the poll.
