Governor Rick Perry’s Presidential announcement email, text messages and tweet are below. Show your support to Governor Perry today and help him put America back to work!
As one of my strongest supporters, I want you to be among the first to hear the news. At 1:00PM EST, I will take the stage at the RedState Gathering in South Carolina and announce my candidacy for President of the United States of America.
I need your help during this critical launch to ignite our campaign and set us firmly on the path to victory. Please join us by donating $25, $50, $100, or even more to help spread our message across the nation.
RedState is a group of conservative bloggers fighting to bring principled, effective leadership and reform to the Washington spending machine that our federal government has become. They know, like we do, that any economic plan than envisions the hiring of millions of Americans can only start by laying off our current president.
I want to do for America what we have done in Texas to achieve unmatched job creation and personal liberty: balance budgets, reduce spending, reform the legal system, and lower taxes. I want to get America working again.
Today at 1PM Eastern, I hope you will tune into the live blog of the announcement at RickPerry.org.
As we work to open offices and reach voters across our great nation, please consider a donation to the campaign to get us up and running.
God bless you, and may God continue to bless America.
