Fundraiser Hints Perry Will Jump in Race

From Washington Post’s ‘The Fix’ blog:


In an e-mail invitation obtained by The Fix, former Perry campaign finance chairman Jim Lee invites an exclusive group to dine with the governor in Austin as he gets ever-closer to joining the presidential race. The dinner is set to be held either Tuesday or Wednesday and is limited to 15 people, according to the e-mail.

“Texas Gov. Perry is poised to enter the presidential race in the coming weeks and, if he does, will completely transform the Republican primary,” Lee said, adding later: “Ours will be a condensed and unconventional strategy yet we have a clear path to the nomination.”
