Rick Perry Making Moves in New Hampshire

Posted: Jul 11, 2011 10:47 AM

He's already made moves in Iowa and now Texas Governor Rick Perry is contacting Republican leaders in New Hampshire according to the New Hampshire Journal:

Multiple Republican sources tell NH Journal that Perry is calling top-shelf Republican leaders in the Granite State. One Republican state Senator who received a call from the Governor confirmed that he has been discussing his entry into the presidential sweepstakes with leading state Republicans for the past few days.

Another Republican who spoke to Gov. Perry told NH Journal it sure sounds like he’s planning to run.

With Friday's dismal jobs report, Perry's record in Texas that has allowed the private sector to flourish looks even more appealing.
