Rick Perry Discusses His Possibe Run For President With Neil Cavuto

See the interview below this post

Bookmark and Share   Fox News’ Neil Cavuto conducted the first interview with Texas Governor Rick Perry since he indicated that he is considering a run for President.

In it Perry claims that six weeks ago a presidential run was not on his “radar” but after conversations with several people he trusts, including his wife, he has come around to giving the possibility a good look.

The interview was one of many candidate-like opportunities that Perry took advantage of on a trip to New York City. The trip was made for the purpose of delivering a speech to the Manhattan Republican Party’s Lincoln Day Dinner. Donald Trump was originally scheduled to deliver the events keynote address, but he pulled out after rejecting his own for President. But Perry maximized the impact of his trip to the Big Apple by taking advantage of several opportunities to address some major New York based media outlets that have broad national reach. That includes the Wall Street Journal of which Perry requested to meet with its editorial board.

In the video of Neil Cavuto’s interview with Governor Perry (see below) to invite him to speak to them, Perry replied;

I think it’s the right thing for them to do to pick the Governor of state that’s got a great story to tell. When you look at we’ve done, seriously on the job creation side, you said in you’re opening, ‘what’s the secret’, the fact is it really is not a secret. You just keep those taxes low and your regulatory climate fair and balanced”.

He added that tort reform which protects from frivolous lawsuits also goes a long way in creating the right climate for job creation and a strong economic climate.

Generally, the clip below gives a good indication as to why Perry is seen by many as the strongest candidate left that can possibly run against President Obama.
