Texas-governor-Rick Perry implored-Texans-not to rock the political boat too much in choosing-a-successor.Although he stopped short of endorsing-his-Republican-heir-apparent,state Attorney General Greg Abbott,there was little debate that's who Perry was referring to when he repeated a famous quote from legendary University of Texas football coach Darrell Royal."You gotta dance with the one that brung ya," Perry quipped, just before announcing that he wouldn't seek to continue in the office. Gov. Rick Perry was a champion of fiercely conservative social activism long before the tea party was born. He oversaw the "Texas Miracle" job-creation boom and became the state's most powerful governor since Reconstruction. But nationally, Perry is better known for his 'oops' presidential debate brain freeze or for not opposing forcefully enough the notion that Texas could secede from the union. For many outside the Lone Star State, he's a political punchline on par with Dan Quayle ? if he's known at all. Governor Rick Perry, the longest-serving governor in Texas history and a former GOP presidential candidate, will not run for re-election in 2014.
