Texas Governor Rick Perry seems to be getting a much larger national profile these days. Newsweek has come sniffing around Austin for him and it is making the local journos take a closer look. Perry's team insists he has no plans to run for president in 2012.
Heck, Perry has even invaded the world of NASCAR. Check out what photographer Kevin Greer snapped a picture of last weekend for me at The Samsung Mobile 500 Weekend at Texas Motor Speedway! A "RickPerry.org" ad was emblazoned on Terry Labonte's car. (BTW, the Corpus Christi, TX Native came in 23rd.)
RickPerry.org sure is generic though. It wasn't RickPerryforTexas.org or PerryforTXGov.org. Maybe Newsweek is on to something.
