Governor Rick Perry Retiring From Texas Politics

After an embarrassingly laughable presidential campaign in 2011-2012 (eventually losing the nomination to Mitt Romney), Governor Rick Perry of Texas stated he won't seek a fifth term as he's served as Governor since 2000. He hasn't ruled out another run for the White House. I guess Perry realized as Texas' longest-serving governor, he has to give another Republican a chance to embarrass the state of Texas. Though I wouldn't say that a Democrat couldn't win next year, and if that happens they will be the first Democratic governor of Texas since Ann Richards in 1995.

  1. Hey, maybe that woman who did the filibuster could run and be your next governor! Wouldn't that be great?

  2. well she couldn't be my next governor. I live in South Carolina. Though our red state Republican governor Nikki Haley almost lost the gubernatorial race in 2010 in the biggest GOP landslide in decades.

    She's up for re-election the same year as Texas' governor race, and there's a good chance she could lose. Though South Carolina never fails to surprise me on how it can break records on political stupidity.

  4. I really don't know why these people have to hold a press conference just to announce they are leaving office.
