Presidential hopeful visits Indy

October 12, 2011

Texas Gov. Rick Perry is the latest Republican presidential contender to try to stake a claim on the state Barack Obama won in 2008. He is scheduled to speak Wednesday afternoon at the Columbia Club in downtown Indianapolis. Perry is the fourth GOP candidate to accept an invitation from state Republican Chairman Eric Holcomb to visit Indiana. He also was among the GOP candidates who took part in a debate Tuesday night in New Hampshire.
