Rick Perry Schedules Trip to New Hampshire

More

The Rick Perry 2012 drumbeat rolls on, as the Texas governor has scheduled a trip to New Hampshire in October. Perry has generated increasing speculation about a presidential bid, appearing last week at a GOP dinner in Manhattan. The Hill's Michael O'Brien reports:

Perry will keynote a fundraiser dinner by Cornerstone Action, a conservative group in the state. Kevin Smith, the group's executive director, said they had reached out to Perry to headline the event in early May, and confirmation came this week.

"We reached out to him and we had reached out some time ago, probably at the beginning of May," he said. "So it was actually before any of the rumors about him being serious about running for president."
