Perry Spent $17K on Speech Coaches

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) "has a campaign stockpile of $4.4 million collected for a now nonexistent re-election battle -- and that state pot can work to his political benefit as he eyes another run for president," the Houston Chronicle reports.

One interesting item: Perry spent $17,000 for speech coaches "to smooth his public delivery after earning a reputation for tripping over his tongue during his run for the 2012 Republican presidential nod."
