Watch live: Perry's announcement speech

His campaign website’s already up and running. A choice quote distinguishing him from Bush via Steve Hayes: “A true conservative, Rick Perry is the only Texas governor since WWII to cut general revenue spending.”

Here’s his “Why I’m Running” statement to tide you over until the speech begins. Another choice quote: “I will work every day to make Washington, D.C. as inconsequential in your lives as I can.” We’ll have the video available at some point in case you can’t watch now. Click the image to watch.
