 Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced in early June he is seeking the republican nomination for the 2016 presidential race. 

Perry was a chicken farmer and served in the US Air Force before becoming governor of the Lone Star State in 2000. 

His website said Texas had created 1.5 million jobs since the end of 2007. The website also said Texas has created one-third of all new private sector jobs in the US since 2000. 

Perry ran for president in 2012, but dropped out after placing fifth in the Iowa caucuses and skipping the New Hampshire primary. 

According to his website, Perry married his childhood sweetheart, Anita, in 1982. They have two children and two grandchildren.
