AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Gov. Rick Perry says he'll consider seeking the Republican nomination for president.
The longest serving governor in Texas history reversed course Friday after saying for months he wasn't interesting in running for the White House. Perry said he will decide whether to enter the race after the Texas Legislature adjourns Monday.
Perry was speaking at a ceremonial signing event for legislation that will require Texas voters to present photo identification at polling places.
The conservative governor has been the subject of speculation as some Republicans lamented the slate of GOP candidates planning to challenge President Barack Obama. Perry had said repeatedly in response he was focused on the state's legislative session. Asked once again on Friday if he'd consider a run, Perry said: "I'm going to think about it."
