Rick Perry to attend NH house party this Saturday
August 08. 2011 11:36AM
Texas Gov. Rick Perry will attend a house party at the home of Rep. Pamela Tucker, R-Greenland, this Saturday, Aug. 13, and 5 p.m., I confirmed this morning.
Tucker was part of a group of Granite Staters who went to Texas on Aug. 4th to encourage Gov. Perry to run for President. During the visit, they invited him to come to New Hampshire. Tucker received word today that he will come on Saturday, and she is hosting the house party for him.
"We will be hosting a gathering of Republicans he can meet," she said. "It will be at 5:30 Saturday evening."
Tucker said the event is a direct result of the group's trip to Texas last week.
"We all invited him up, and he accepted. I have the room to host enough people, and we have the time to do it, so we're having it at my place."
Tucker remains uncommitted in the Republican primary.
"I haven't officially endorsed anybody," she said.
What will Perry talk about?
"I think he's gonna come up and talk to the voters about his record of job creation down there and get a feel for what the voters of New Hampshire are looking for in a candidate," she said.
