NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry is elbowing the
Republicans already in the 2012 presidential race as he courts
party activists who are shopping for someone to back against
President Barack Obama.

Perry's appearance Saturday at the Republican Leadership Conference could offer another tantalizing hint that he's ready to upend a crowded field of candidates who have worked months to amass name recognition, organization and campaign cash.

The longest serving governor of his state is drawing much
interest despite little effort.

He insisted for long time that he wouldn't run. But in recent weeks, he has softened his refusals and his advisers have started laying the groundwork for a campaign in Iowa.
