With his governor's duties nearly over in Texas, Gov. Rick Perry is heading to the key primary state of New Hampshire in February, The Hill reports
Signaling his likely interest in a second GOP presidential bid, Perry will attend several events in the Granite State from Feb. 11-12, The Hill said, citing reporting from NH1
Perry last visited New Hampshire right after November's midterm elections. In February, he is expected to meet with the state's Republican party leadership, NH1 noted.
Perry is also set to visit Iowa later this month where he will attend the Jan. 24 Iowa Freedom Summit, an event featuring several high-profile conservative party leaders including Sen. Ted Cruz, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and neurosurgeon Ben Carson, the Houston Chronicle reported
Perry, who has served as Texas governor for 14 years, a record tenure, is mulling a second White House run, touting his record of effective state leadership.
“Americans are begging for a positive view of the future, for an individual who’s got a record of being able to make a better future for their families,” he told CNN, according to StateColumn.com
. “And that’s exactly what we’ve done in Texas over the last 14 years, more jobs created than any other state a third of all the jobs created in America since I’ve been governor, created in Texas.”
