TEXAS- Governor Rick Perry is clearing up remarks that he made about running for the presidency.
Over the weekend, the Governor told a newspaper that he felt as if he were being "called" to run for president.
Today, he was asked if there were any religious overtones to that statement.
"I don't ever get confused. I am a man of faith. I don't make any apologies about my faithfulness and the fact of the matter is I think anyone who goes through life without having that foundation of faith, you know I don't know how they do it. I couldn't. So the idea do I look for signs and do I look for good scripture that tells me how to live my life? Absolutely, I do that."
Governor Perry says he's still evaluating whether to make a run for the white house.
