Texas Governor Rick Perry not only announced his candidacy for president at the RedState Gathering 2011 in Charleston, South Carolina today. He also released a new campaign video and has an event scheduled in New Hampshire this evening.
The terrific video is about Gov. Perry's vision for getting America working again:
I even like the description the Perry campaign included with the video:
We will not sit back and accept our current misery ... because a great country requires a better direction ... because a renewed nation requires a new president. That's why, with faith in God, the support of my family, and an unwavering belief in the goodness of America, I am a candidate for President of the United States.
Well done Governor Perry, it's a solid campaign launch.
