Perry Courts The Right

Texas – With his Republican primary victory safely behind him, Texas Gov. Rick Perry is still working hard to court conservative voters.

Perry, who is running for a third full term in office, is scheduled to speak Saturday night at conservative radio and television talk show host Glenn Beck's "Taking Back America" town hall event in Tyler.

Although he has denied it, speculation is swirling that Perry may consider a run for president in 2012 and experts say appearing with Beck keeps him in the minds of conservative voters.

Perry faces former Houston mayor Bill White, the Democratic nominee, in the race for governor in November.
