What happens to Rick Perry when he returns to Texas?

in Uncategorized by

As Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) wraps up his failed presidential bid and heads home to continue governing his state, Time reports that he “returns bruised and diminished, taking his place among a gallery of strong talkin’, wide-steppin’ Texas politicos who have ventured across the Red River only to return with their tails between their legs.”

“Many Texans must feel that the governor is returning as damaged goods with lots of self-inflicted political wounds which he will have to heal fast to be able to be effective at governing the state… Texas has no term limits and Perry spokesman Ray Sullivan said following the drop out announcement that the governor would not rule out another term… But there are other strong Republicans standing in the queue for the top job in Texas, including Attorney General Greg Abbott. Meanwhile, a few Republicans are beginning to question Perry’s policies and approach, some even agreeing to go on the record.”
