It’s Official! Rick Perry is Running for President!

Well, it’s official folks – we now have yet another GOP candidate for President officially in the race. Former Texas Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) gave his formal announcement on Thursday standing next to a real American hero, “Lone Survivor” Marcus Luttrell. Governor Perry was one of the favorites in the last nominating process back in 2012 before a series of blunders (especially this one) cost him his shot at the nomination.
