Texas Gov. Rick Perry will announce Saturday that he is running for the Republican presidential nomination in a move expected to fundamentally reshape the race and divert attention from other contenders, many of whom will be competing this weekend in the Iowa Straw Poll.
"The voters in Texas are conservative, and I think anybody who wants to be successful has to be conservative, not just in word, but in deed — people who don't just talk the talk, but walk the walk," said David Carney, a GOP consultant who served as chief strategist for Mr. Perry's 2012 campaign.
Perry strategist David Carney said the campaign was doing well with evangelicals and leveraging their leaders' endorsements, noting that John Stemberger of the Florida Family Policy Council wrote in an opinion column Thursday that Mr. Perry is not only a true conservative on social, economic and defense issues, but the "most electable" of the Republican candidates against President Obama.
