Iowa Governor believes Perry will run for President

Posted: Updated:

Des Moines, Iowa (AP) - Iowa Govenor. Terry Branstad says he think it's very likely that Texas Governor Rick Perry will jump into the GOP presidential race.

Branstad is basing that opinion on a conversation the two governors had Friday. Branstad tells the AP that Perry says his family is encouraging him to run. Branstad says he expects Perry to visit Iowa, home of the first caucuses, within the next month.

Branstad is at the National Governors Association meeting in Salt Lake City, which Perry is skipping. Perry called Branstad as he gathers input about a potential run. Perry has been making hundreds of calls to potential donors, activists and political figures around the country.
