    After more than a decade in the Governor’s office, former Presidential Candidate Rick Perry says he won’t run for re-election in the Lone Star state. But what about any future White House aspirations?

    FOX News radio’s Jared Halpern has the story from Washington DC:

    Audio clip:

    He’s been the Governor of Texas since President George W. Bush won the White House, but Republican Rick Perry says he will not run for a fourth full-term next year.

    Perry: “The time has come to pass on the mantle of leadership.”

    Perry made a run for the Republican presidential nomination last year and is not ruling out another White House bid.

    Perry: “I’ll also pray and reflect and work to determine my own future path.”
