‘Rick Perry Challenges Greg Abbott In March Primary’: Sorry, Let Me Clarify; Rick Perry From Springtown, Not Former Governor Rick Perry

On December 13, hours before the deadline, Rick Perry filed for the March primary election. No, not Rick Perry, the former governor, and U.S. energy secretary, but rather Ricky Lynn Perry, a man from Springtown, a town in Parker County northwest of Fort Worth.

Ricky Perry from Springtown, is a senior desktop technician for Lockheed Martin, according to his LinkedIn profile. 

Tony McDonald, an Austin lawyer – who has supported one of Abbott’s primary opponents, Don Huffines – helped notarize Perry’s form, claiming he is a “good conservative activist from Parker County” whom he supports and will be serving as his campaign treasurer, as reported by The Texas Tribune. 

Rick Perry was the longest- serving governor of Texas, preceding Abbott. His name could complicate Abbott’s path to reelection, even though his predecessor isn’t directly challenging him. 

Abbott is running for a third term and apart from Perry has drawn up more challengers; including former State Sen. Don Huffines, comedian Chad Prather, Paul Belew, an attorney in Wise County, Danny Harrison, who runs a landscaping business in Plano, and Kandy Kaye Horn of Rockwell.

It appears the Governor will have the first significant GOP primary battle of his political career.
