Texas Gov. Rick Perry is inviting hundreds of prominent Republican donors and policy experts to a series of gatherings next month that are intended to rebuild his damaged national brand and lay the foundation for a potential 2016 presidential campaign, fundraisers and organizers confirmed to POLITICO.
So what are the steps Rick Perry is taking?
- “small-group sessions kick off Tuesday and Wednesday in Austin with a pair of lunches and dinners held in the governor’s mansion”
- “policy briefings at the nearby office of Perry senior adviser Jeff Miller”
- Oops. I forget.
Like shooting fish in a barrel.
