Perry was widely mocked after his performance in a primary debate for the 2012 presidential nomination, in which he failed to remember the third of three federal agencies he would eliminate if elected president.

Perry announced this year that he would not seek reelection, leaving the door open for another presidential run in 2016. The Republican National Committee's plan to hold fewer debates in the 2016 election cycle could mean fewer "Oops" moments should the Texas governor launch a bid.
