Anita Perry encourages husband to run for president

AUSTIN, Texas (By BRAD WATSON, WFAA) - Gov. Rick Perry will need money, organization, staff and stamina if he runs for president.

But he appears to already have the support that's most important for the race — his wife's.

Following a brief meeting on state finances Tuesday, Perry talked expansively for the first time on what his wife, Anita, has been telling him about a White House run.

“My wife was talking to me and saying: 'Listen... get out of your comfort zone. Yeah, being governor of Texas is a great job, but sometimes you're called to step into the fray,'” the governor said.
