The Republican presidential primary’s slow pace to come into focus has some pushing for Texas Gov. Rick Perry to jump into the race. Some political operatives are quietly testing the waters for Perry in early primary states, the political web site RealClearPolitics.com is reporting.

perry texas, presidentPerry, a three-term governor, Tuesday gave an impassioned speech to top-ranking Republicans in Dallas. Many left impressed by the governor, who has repeatedly said he’s not running for president in 2012.

“I would love to see a movement to draft Rick for the nomination if that’s the only way we can get him to run,” said Bill Crocker, Republican National Committee general counsel, the Washington Times reported.

Perry gave a luncheon address to a group of GOP state chairmen and other RNC members that was well received.

“The comments I got after his speech made it clear I am not alone,” Crocker said Former California GOP Chairman Shawn Steel, now an elected national committeeman, called Perry “the most dynamic and tested candidate from America’s most successful state with a Reagan-view vision. Yet he is holding back from running for president. Why?”

Pressure on Perry to jump into the race is only expected to grow.
