Rick Perry Up Against His Own Track Record As He Runs For President Again

Rick Perry joined a crowded field of Republican hopefuls by launching his second bid for the White House with a new campaign website on Thursday - but he faces a daunting task.
“I am running for president because I know our country’s best days are ahead of us,” he said on his new website.
“If we’re going to revive this American dream again, we need a president who provides leadership that transcends the petty partisanship of the last few years - someone that’s been tested,” the former Texas governor said in a campaign video. He added, “We need a president that tells the American people the truth.”
