Texas Gov. Rick Perry is focused on the present before he’ll speak of his intentions for the future. Asked on “Fox News Sunday” about his intentions regarding a fourth gubernatorial run, Perry replied:
I’m going to have an announcement tomorrow. But we have a special session with some important issues in front of us. We’re going to pass some restrictions on abortion in Texas so that Texas is a place where we defend life …That’s the powerful message here. And that’s what we’re focused on. Politics will take care of itself.
When questioned further about any presidential aspirations for 2016, Perry continued, “Well, certainly, that’s an option out there, but again, we got a lot of work to do in this building right behind me [the Texas capitol] over the course of the next couple of weeks that have my focus substantially more than even 2014 or 2016.”
Taking care of abortion before personal aspirations? That’s Rick Perry.
