Perry says he intends to win primary outright

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Governor Rick Perry says he intends to win the Republican nomination for governor outright.

But he says that if he's forced into a runoff with U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison after the March 2 primary, "it's not the end of the world."

Perry made those remarks Friday after speaking to about 400 people at a Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce luncheon.

A recent poll conducted for five Texas newspapers shows that while Perry could win the nomination, he could face a runoff with Hutchison.

According to the poll, Perry leads with 45 percent support among likely Republican voters, with Hutchison at 29 percent.

Republican activist Debra Medina, whose campaign has attracted Tea Party voters, was at 17 percent, and 8 percent were undecided.
