But back to politics...Paulsen said Perry asked him if he could set up some time for the two to meet when he comes to Iowa. Paulsen said he told him "of course".
Paulsen said Perry didn't say whether he planned to run for president and he didn't ask him.
If you're keeping score...Paulsen said he has met or talked to Pawlenty, Romney, Cain, Bachmann and McCotter this year. He said when Paul came to the Iowa Statehouse, he didn't get to meet with him. He said he may or may not endorse someone before the caucuses. Paulsen hasn't exactly spent a lot of time outside the statehouse checking out the presidential scene since the last legislative session went overtime by two months.
