Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) announced his 2016 run for President on a website he rolled out on Thursday morning.
“I am running for president because I know our country’s best days are ahead of us. The road to the White House will demand my best and I will work every day to earn your support,” the “Volunteer” page said.
Perry is expected to give a speech later on Thursday to formally announce his second bid for the White House, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The site’s “Issues” page had one-sentence statements on a handful of topics: Economic Growth, Lower Taxes, Eliminate Debt, National Security, and Stop Special Interests And Big Government.
“2016 will not be an election about lofty rhetoric,” Perry said in a video, “it’s gonna be about a record of leadership.”
“It’s gonna be a show me don’t tell me election,” he added.
