Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) is likely to announce whether he will make another run for president in 2016 by late this year, a spokesman told Post Politics on Tuesday.

Perry told the Florida political blog The Shark Tank that Perry had said he would decide on whether to seek reelection as governor in June and then volunteered that he would make an announcement about running for president "sometime later in the year."

Perry spokesman Josh Havens confirmed that Perry will probably announce his 2016 plans in the latter part of 2013.
