DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — If Texas Gov. Rick Perry runs for president and loses Iowa to some other Republican again, it won’t be for a lack of trying.

The 64-year-old Perry is on his fourth trip to the state in eight months, meeting Saturday and Sunday with veterans and conservative activists in the northern Iowa communities of Algona and Clear Lake.

Although he hasn’t said if he’ll seek the White House in 2016, Perry has been raising funds for GOP candidates and seeking advice from political insiders since November.

Just how Perry will be received remains to be seen.

Perry entered the 2012 presidential race with much fanfare, but quickly stumbled. He finished fifth in the Iowa caucuses in early 2012 and quit the race two weeks later.
