DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry is in Iowa for a two-day visit that he says is geared at helping the Iowa governor's re-election campaign.
Perry, who launched a failed Republican bid for President in 2012, had several stops in the Des Moines suburbs Thursday and was scheduled to meet with business leaders in Davenport on Friday. After he was interviewed for a public affairs show on Iowa Public Television on Thursday, Perry told reporters he had made no decisions about whether to run for president in 2016.
Perry says he'll be helping Republican Gov. Terry Branstad with his 2014 campaign, doing "whatever he'd like me to do."
This is Perry's first visit to Iowa since last November. He's frequently mentioned as a potential presidential candidate.
