SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Will he or won’t he?

Gov. Rick Perry has invited friends and supporters to San Antonio and the country’s largest Caterpillar equipment dealership Monday afternoon to announce “exciting future plans.”

The longest-serving governor in Texas history should reveal if he’ll seek a fourth full term in office next year. The location is meant to symbolize Perry’s prowess as a job-creator overseeing the state’s booming economy.

Perry was lieutenant governor but moved up when George W. Bush left for the White House in December 2000.

If he runs again, Perry may face a challenge in the GOP primary from well-funded Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott.

Perry hasn’t offered hints on his plans. But he also hasn’t ruled out another White House run. Perry in January 2012 dropped his presidential bid.
