WFAA-TV

Today, from the Caterpillar plant in San Antonio, Governor Rick Perry announced he won’t run for re-election in 2014.  Perry is the longest serving Texas governor, taking office after George W. Bush won the presidency in 2000.

“Today, I’m announcing, I will not seek re-election as Governor of Texas,” said Governor Perry. “I will spend the next 18 months workin’ to create more jobs, opportunity and innovation. I will actively lead this great state.”

As far as what Perry would do after leaving the Governor’s Mansion, he said, “To the next 18 months as I serve out my term; any future considerations I will announce in due time and I will arrive at that decision appropriately. But my focus will remain on Texas.”

It is expected that Attorney General Greg Abbott will announce he is running for governor in the coming weeks.
