Does Governor Perry intend to run for President? Erick Erickson weighs in

Texas governor Rick Perry will reportedly signal his intention to run for President this weekend at the conservative RedState Gathering in South Carolin, a key early primary state.

Perry will make a speech at the conference, after which he'll travel to New Hampshire to meet with GOP party activists. The governor's appearance coincides with a straw poll of Republican candidates in Iowa and his remarks are likely to distract Americans from his GOP rivals competing in the event.

Today on American Morning, Erick Erickson, editor-in-chief for, joins Christine Romans to weigh on the possibility that Governor Perry will announce a presidential run.
