The Wall Street Journal is reporting that a “normally reliable Republican source” has confirmed that Texas Gov. Rick Perry will run for president. However, the source says Perry may not enter until early August.

Despite the news, the Journal says the official word from the Perry camp is “maybe.” The WSJ reports:

Our normally reliable Republican source reports that Mr. Perry has surveyed the field and decided to get in the race later this summer, perhaps around the time of the national prayer meeting that Mr. Perry is hosting on August 6 at a Houston football stadium. Our source also reports that Mr. Perry is aiming to compete in the Iowa Straw Poll, even though it occurs just a week later, on August 13. The thinking is that apparent front-runner Mitt Romney “does not reflect the Republican Party” and is therefore vulnerable to a credible challenge from the right, especially after Mr. Romney’s recent squishy remarks on global warming.

“We don’t have to cloak our intentions, because we don’t know what our intentions are,” Perry campaign adviser David Carney, who was one of the main advisers who quit Newt Gingrich’s campaign this month, told the WSJ.
