Rick Perry

James Richard "Rick" Perry (born March 4, 1950) is the 47th and current Governor of Texas. A Republican, Perry was elected Lieutenant Governor of Texas in 1998 and assumed the governorship in December 2000 when then-governor George W. Bush resigned ... to become President of the United States. Perry was elected to full gubernatorial terms in 2002, 2006 and 2010. With a tenure in office to date of 10 years, 289 days, Perry is the longest continuously serving current U.S. governor, and the second longest serving current U.S. governor after Terry Branstad of Iowa.Perry served as Chairman of the Republican Governors Association in 2008 (succeeding Sonny Perdue of Georgia) and again in 2011. Perry is the longest serving governor in Texas state history. As a result, he is the only governor in modern Texas history to have appointed at least one person to every eligible state office, board, or commission position (as well as to several elected offices to which the governor can appoint someone to fill an unexpired term, such as six of the nine current members of the Texas Supreme Court).Perry won the Texas 2010 Republican gubernatorial primary election, defeating U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison and former Wharton County Republican Party Chairwoman and businesswoman Debra Medina. In the 2010 Texas gubernatorial election, Perry won a third term by defeating former Houston mayor Bill White and Kathie Glass. On August 13, 2011, Perry announced in South Carolina that he was running for the Republican nomination for President of the United States in the 2012 presidential election. Political observers and public opinion polls place him as a front-runner in the race   more

Why do you care? It's not like you are true conservative. Why don't you make a poll you care about more? For example, Should Texas pass legislation for medical marijuana? @ Texas14

By historical standards, I am a true conservative. I believe in personal freedom, balancing the budget, cutting spending. It's neo-conservatives who aren't the real conservatives. Senator Robert Taft (aka Mr. Republican) didn't even want to be in NATO.

I align with Robert Taft by the way on many issues.

As for the poll I don't really think anyone 'won'. Its kinda hard to figure out who did the best when there literally isnt even an audience to cheer/applaud candidates after their remarks... Im also disappointed that the candidates weren't allowed to respond to each other or challenge their stances. The whole thing seemed like more of a CSPAN Q+A session than any sort of debate
