Governor Rick Perry isn’t running for any political office, but he still knows how to bring Republicans to their feet.

Before thousands of Republicans at the Texas GOP Convention in Fort Worth, the Governor dished out political red meat. “The National Democrats think Texas is the new battleground. We’ll, let’s be really clear. Texas will be their political burial ground.”

The party played a video tribute to the man who’s become the states longest serving Governor, a man who may again seek higher office.

Mr. Perry told the crowd, “We need to set the stage for 2016 and we will win the White House.” He reminded delegates of the robust Texas economy under his watch, and criticized the Obama administration’s extreme backlog of treating veterans at VA Hospitals across the country.

“Our military veterans lived up to their end of the bargain,” he said. “It is time for the federal government to do the same.”

Some supporters, like Suzanne Bettac, believe Perry’s already running for President. “Oh, I think so. He hit all the right notes – certainly for Texas.”
