Texas Gov. Rick Perry says he'll likely decide in two or three weeks whether he'll run for president.
The conservative Republican has long been scornful of Washington, and he says even now he doesn't wake up wanting to be president. But Perry says he also knows his wife, Anita, and others want him to run and he's getting used to the idea.
Perry told the Des Moines Register that he's "getting more and more comfortable every day that this is what I've been called to do. This is what America needs."
Perry is the longest-serving governor in Texas history. An evangelical Christian, he has a strong following among the social conservatives who often dominate Republican politics.
His aides began making inquiries last month about Iowa's leadoff presidential nominating caucuses.
