During a special announcement on Monday, Governor Rick Perry announced he would not seek re-election as Governor of Texas.

Perry announced this after being introduced by his wife, Anita Perry.

As reported last week, Perry,  the longest-serving governor in Texas history,  invited supporters to join him and his family at an event today in San Antonio at which he unveiled "exciting future plans."

The announcement today is likely paving the way for Attorney General Greg Abbott to succeed him.

This is the only thing he's done since he required HPV vaccinations that I have approved of.

There is a God in heaven, and it is time for Texas Democrats to step up and put the repub/tea party out of business in this state...thank God slick rick will be out of the game, and pray that Democrats will rise up and take this state back...get the vote out, put strong, honest servant/leaders up for election, encourage WENDY to run, and get this strong, capable, compassionate and forceful woman in the Governor's mansion!!
