US candidate Rick Perry 'may miss future debates' (BBC)
Rick Perry may skip some upcoming Republican presidential debates, according to campaign officials.

Mr Perry is confirmed for a debate on 9 November, one of more than half a dozen scheduled before the end of the year.

His performance at previous events has hurt his standing in the nomination race - he has said they are more about "stirring up" than true debate.

A recent poll of Republican voters saw the former governor of Texas fall to fifth place among the candidates.

"We haven't said no, but we're looking at each debate," campaign spokesman Mark Miner told the Associated Press on Thursday, adding "while debates are part of the process, they're just one part".

1. He needs to miss them
Watching him in the last debate made me think of Bush for some reason. 1. Can't speak well and on top of that he sounds like an idiot. Hey he's also from Texas. What a coincidence!
