Rick Perry: I’ll be back

Power Players

Spinners and Winners

Don't count Rick Perry out just yet. Spinners and Winners caught up with the Texas governor and former Republican presidential candidate at the annual gathering of conservatives in Washington over the weekend, where it sounded a heck of a lot like he is going to run again in 2016.
"You may run again?" ABC's Jonathan Karl asked.
"Absolutely," said Perry.
Perry skyrocketed to the top of the Republican charts last August only to have his campaign fizzle out last month. Perry revealed what he was really thinking during some of those memorable debate moments on the campaign trail: the $10,000 bet, Mitt Romney laying a hand on Perry's shoulder, and Perry's devastating 'oops' moment.
Although Perry has thrown his support behind former rival Newt Gingrich, he had some advice for Mitt Romney: "Governor you gotta stand up in front of the American people and say what you did on health care in Massachusetts was wrong," he told Karl. "You need to stand up and clearly distance yourself from the biggest issue that's out there with this president."
