Texas Governor To Appear On ‘Dancing With The Stars’

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Rick Perry is Texas’ longest-serving governor and a two-time unsuccessful presidential candidate. But can he two-step in his signature cowboy boots?

America is about to find out.

Perry tweeted Tuesday that he will appear on season 23 of “Dancing with the Stars” to help veterans, though he didn’t elaborate on how.

Perry left office last year. Donald Trump recently hailed the idea of Perry challenging Sen. Ted Cruz in the 2018 Republican primary, though Perry hasn’t commented.

While running for president, Perry scoffed at Trump’s reality show, only to now join one. Perry also once was a fierce Trump critic, but now endorses him.

Another Texas politico, former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, appeared on “Dancing with the Stars” in 2009.

The new season premieres Sept. 12 on ABC.
