POLITICO: Perry to head RGA
Fri November 12, 2010 4:58 pm

From the article:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry will be tapped as the new chairman of the Republican Governors Association when the organization meets next week in San Diego, GOP sources tell POLITICO.

Perry recently released a book taking aim at the federal government and both the subject of the tome, “Fed Up!,” and his promotion of it have fueled speculation that he is eyeing a presidential bid.

This is the interesting part:

But his appointment to helm the RGA heading into 2011 — when three states will hold governors’ races — amounts to the first concrete evidence that the Texan is serious when he says he has no interest in pursuing the White House. It would be nearly impossible to raise money for the committee and help direct the gubernatorial contests in Louisiana, Mississippi and Kentucky while running for president….

Oh yeah? I still think Perry is running for president. Don’t tell me he can’t delegate a few people to run a governor’s race. Their names might be Carney, Weeks, Baselice, Johnson, and Miner.
