The governor and his wife, Anita Perry, in their first interview since Perry dropped out of the Republican presidential race, told Fox News that they regret not jumping into the race sooner, and Anita Perry hopes her husband will decide to run again…

Perry admits he wasn’t prepared during the presidential race for what he calls the “Debate Society.” He thinks he got much better at debating near the end of his campaign, but by then he came to the conclusion he wasn’t doing the race any good and was “absorbing some of the conservative vote.”

Perry also said his back surgery was a problem but not the reason for his rocky campaign start. If he does it again, Perry says there will be much more debate prep.
