Under Indictment, Rick Perry Announces His Losing 2016 Run [VIDEO]

Former Texas Governor Rick Perry announced his 2016 presidential campaign on his website Thursday morning, hours before a planned kickoff event in Dallas. โ€œI am running for president because I know our countryโ€™s best days are ahead of us,โ€ the site reads. His 2012 campaign was promising, but derailed by a fatal mistake in a debate in which he couldnโ€™t remember the names of the federal agencies he said he wanted to shut down. Perry is low in the polls and will have to fight through a crowded Republican field.
