U.S. Presidential Election 2016

Rick Perry - 05 Jun 2015
Former Texas Governor Rick Perry announced on Thursday he will pursue the Republican presidential nomination again in 2016, seeking redemption for a fumbled White House bid in 2012 and adding to a crowded field of conservative candidates.

Perry said at a rally in Addison, a Dallas suburb, that he would boost the U.S. economy and improve homeland security, and he pointed to his record in Texas as proof he could do it.

"We will unleash an era of economic growth and limitless opportunity," Perry said. "It can be done because it has been done in Texas."

The longest-serving governor in Texas history, Perry's 2012 candidacy fell apart in an embarrassing Republican debate performance when he failed to remember the third of three government agencies he wanted to scrap, blurting out "Oops."

Perry, 65, has presented himself since as a more thoughtful, policy-oriented candidate this time around.

Wearing his signature thick-framed glasses, Perry used an agriculture summit in March in the early voting state of Iowa to try to showcase his grasp of foreign policy, one of his weak points the last time around.
