The Washington Times -Â TexasÂ Gov. Rick Perry said Thursday that he will visitÂ Israel in October, a move that signals to the political world that he is seriously considering making another presidential run in 2016.
“We will be going toÂ Israel to bring together Arabs, Christian and Jews in an educational forum,”Â Mr. Perry told The Washington Times in an interview just three days after he announced he would not seek an unprecedented fourth term as Texas governor.
Many analysts interpreted that decision as evidence that he is setting the table for aÂ White House campaign. Asked what would induce him to announce a run, he told The Times that he has “plenty of time to make that decision.”
