Speculation is mounting that Gov. Rick Perry will run for yet another four-year term in 2010, which could give him an unprecedented 14 years in the highest state office. Sources tell PoliTex that Texas First Lady Anita Perry has given the guv a green light if he wants to run again. Meanwhile, watchful eyes have begun to notice a new bumper sticker on the automobiles of some of Perry's supporters. It sports Perry's trademark cattle brand-looking "R" and says: "Again in '10.''
"They are not ours, but we've seen a growing number of them around town,'' said Perry spokesman Robert Black, who remained coy about Perry's political destiny.
"The governor has not decided what his future plans would be, but if there is one thing everyone should know about Rick Perry by now, it's that you never underestimate him,'' Black said.
