Perry seeks to win over Iowa with frequent visits

May 25, 2015

LE MARS, Iowa — Rick Perry’s early, hands-on approach in Iowa contrasts with the 2016 presidential prospect’s failed bid four years ago, when he entered the race relatively late and stumbled in the debates.
The former Texas governor says he has more policy knowledge now and more time for the early states.
