Perry announcing June 4 if he’ll run again for president

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry addresses guests during a “Cocktails and Conversation” event in Naples, Fla., Wednesday. Perry’s spokesman on Friday said Perry will announced whether he is running for president on June 4.

AUSTIN, Texas — Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry will say next month whether he’s running for president.

Perry is the longest-serving governor in Texas history. He’s been traveling in Iowa and other early-voting states to explore a second campaign for the White House.

A spokesman says the Republican former governor is not ready to say he’s made up his mind, and says Perry will announce his intentions June 4 in Dallas.

Perry left office in January. His 2012 presidential campaign was short-lived, undone by an “oops” moment in a debate when he couldn’t remember the third Cabinet agency he wanted to eliminate.
