Texas governor to address Alabama GOP

BIRMINGHAM, AL Party Chairman Bill Armistead says Texas Gov. Rick Perry will speak at the dinner Aug. 12 in Birmingham.

Armistead says the three-term governor is a standout in the group being mentioned as possible presidential candidates. He said Alabama will attract more national Republican leaders because of the state's early presidential primary in March 2012.
