After his lackluster performance in the last 5 debates, Rick Perry is ready to give it another try.

Perry's campaign announced that the Texas governor and GOP presidential hopeful will be participating in at least 5 upcoming debates. Prior to the announcement, many speculated that Perry would bypass the debates to focus on other forms of campaigning.But now, the campaign had confirmed that Perry will be participating in all 4 upcoming November debates, as well as a December debate.

Perry joked that with all the debates going on, he may "get to be a good debater before this is all over." Well, we'll see if practice makes perfect when the next round of debates kicks off on November 9th.
