Perry to social cons: "I can assure you that there is nothing in my life that will embarrass you"

During one exchange, Perry was asked — politely but directly — to assure the group that nothing embarrassing in his personal life would emerge during the 2012 presidential campaign.

With first lady Anita Perry at his side, the governor said that would not happen.

“I can assure you that there is nothing in my life that will embarrass you if you decide to support me for president,” Perry said, according to one of the participants, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.

Should he win the 2012 nomination, Perry also promised to select a vice presidential running mate who is opposed to abortion, the participant said.
