Texas Governor Rick Perry expected to announce that he's entering the race for the 2012 GOP nomination

This Saturday in the early primary state of South Carolina, Texas Governor Rick Perry is expected to announce that he will be entering the race for the 2012 GOP nomination.

According to our CNN/ORC poll, Perry is currently two points behind the GOP front runner Mitt Romney.

James Moore, a Texas-based former TV news correspondent and co-author of the book, "Bush's Brain," says Rick Perry is likely to dominate the Republican campaign for president and is the odds-on favorite to win the White House in 2012.

Moore joins Carol Costello today on American Morning to explain why he thinks that Perry will take the Republican nomination and to discuss where he stands on major political issues.
