Rick Perry to Attend All Five Nov. Debates

Oct 29, 2011 9:38pm

Texas Gov. Rick Perry will participate in all five of the scheduled debates in November, Ray Sullivan, communications director for Perry, confirmed to ABC News.

Perry already had confirmed his participation in the Nov. 9 CNBC debate in Rochester, Mich.

Perry also will attend two national security debates hosted by CBS/National Journal on Nov. 12 in Spartanburg, S.C., and CNN on Nov. 15 in Washington, D.C. The Texas governor will attend a forum hosted by the Family Leader in Iowa on Nov. 19 and a debate in Arizona on Nov. 30.

This was first reported by AP.

Earlier in the week, Perry said the only mistake he’s made in the campaign so far is participating in debates aiming to put candidates against each other.

Aides to Perry suggested he is considering not attending some of the 18 scheduled debates due to time constraints and the need to spend more time on the ground in key early states.

There is no indication which debates past December that Perry will attend.
