DALLAS – Rick Perry, Texas’ longest-serving Governor, will not seek a fourth term in 2014, he told supporters in San Antonio Monday. He gave no indication whether he planned a second run for president.

“I will spend the next 18 months working to create more jobs,” he said. “I make this announcement with a deep sense of humility and deep appreciation, and knowing I will truly miss serving in this capacity, because it is the greatest job in modern politics.”
