Perry: Abbott won't challenge me in 2014 primary

DALLAS

Gov. Rick Perry says Attorney General Greg Abbott has agreed not to challenge him in the 2014 Republican primary if Perry chooses to seek re-election.

Perry made the comment after a taping Wednesday of the television program "Inside Texas Politics" at the WFAA-TV studios in Dallas. He said Abbott "has said clearly that if I ran again he's not going to be running against me."

A spokesman for Abbott declined to comment on Perry's statement and said any speculation on Abbott's political future would be "unproductive."

Abbott has $18 million in cash on hand for a campaign, compared to Perry's $6 million. Perry hasn't said if he'll seek re-election as governor, but observers have said they expect Abbott may enter the Republican gubernatorial primary regardless of what Perry does.

Zippity-do-da, zippity-yea, my oh-my what a wonderful day for Rick.

Maybe Abbott will run against Cornyn instead?
