Rick Perry delays announcement on running again

AUSTIN Gov. Rick Perry says he is delaying an announcement on whether he will run for re-election until after the new special session ends.

He had said an announcement would come before July 1, but that was before he called a second special session to begin that day.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday following a speech to an anti-abortion convention in Dallas, he said any announcement will have to wait until the Legislature finishes its work.

Perry called the special session to pass new restriction on where, when and how women may obtain abortions. Lawmakers will also consider new funding for transportation projects and a new sentencing rule for 17-year-olds who commit capital murder.

3. Numbers from January say he is vulnerable if he runs for governor.

There haven't been any recent polls though.

He doesn't fare very well if he runs for president either:

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz outpaces other potential 2016 Republican presidential candidates in Texas, according to a new poll.

The University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll found that in a match-up of other presidential primary possibilities, Cruz fared the best in Texas, even overtaking Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

In the poll, Cruz took 25 percent of the vote among self-identified GOP primary voters. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul came in second with 13 percent, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was third with 11 percent, then Perry with 10 percent.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Cristie received eight percent as did Paul Ryan, and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal brought up the rear, both with two percent of the vote. Twenty-one percent did not have an opinion.
