Gov. Rick Perry pulled up to Market Street at 50th and Indiana shortly after 4:30 p.m. to a packed coffee house full of people waiting to catch a glimpse of the 2010 republican gubernatorial candidate.

Nearly 200 folks showed up and with standing room only, Gov. Perry addressed some hot topic issues including health care, economic policy, the 10th amendment.

One supporter shouted that Texas should become its own nation and Perry responded by saying "let's show the rest of the country how to do it right."

NewsChannel 11 spoke to Gov. Perry about his re-election campaign. "I'll be real honest I'm not sure there is a campaign yet until folks filed and paid money. Lots are saying I'm going to, I'm going to, but until filing deadline I just stay focused on trying to run best state in nation," says Perry.

Market Street was the governor's second stop of the day. Wednesday afternoon he spoke to the Lubbock Area Association of Health underwriters.
