Texas Gov. Rick Perry today announced his participation in the CNN/Tampa Tea Party Express Debate on Sept. 12 at the Florida State Fairgrounds.
"The Tea Party plays an important role in advancing principles of fiscal responsibility and conservative governance across our nation through its efforts to recruit and elect leaders that will fight to instill these values in the halls of government at all levels throughout our nation," said Gov. Perry. "I look forward to the opportunity this debate presents to discuss my record of conservative leadership and to share my vision with the great people of this country about how we will get America working again."
The Tea Party Debate is a first-of-its-kind event that will bring conservative candidates for President together to discuss tea party principles, and determine which candidate has the best solutions to lead the United States of America and her people into greater freedom and prosperity.
