A Rick Perry primer



Paul Burka is a longtime writer for Texas Monthly and a superb political reporter. He is known to be generous to out-of-state reporters trying to learn about Texas, and in that spirit he has provided us with a succinct article entitled “Dear Yankee: Eight things you ought to know before you start writing stories about Rick Perry. You’re welcome.” It’s the place to start for anyone covering or curious about the Texas governor's likely run for president.
