Perry Tries to Stay Relevant

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) is trying to stay in the mix of possible presidential contenders, Politico reports.

"His strategy: Curry favor with influential party stalwarts, demonstrate to voters in key Democratic strongholds that he has the answers for how to jumpstart the economy and even show a little political leg with a pit stop in Iowa this November."

"All this activity comes as Perry is weighing whether he should take another shot at the White House. It isn't a simple calculation. Not only would Perry have to win back the support of those who abandoned his disastrously unsuccessful 2012 run, he would also have to contend with a new crop of party favorites like Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and fellow Texan Sen. Ted Cruz that are gaining a national following."
