Texas Gov. Rick Perry was in Columbia Wednesday, gathering with about 200 supporters at the First Citizens Café. According to the Post and Courier, Perry, who is a potential presidential candidate in 2016, spoke for about 15 minutes, touching on immigration, the economy and, of course, football. Perry also took time to address his recent indictment in Texas on a charge of abuse of power. The indictment came after the governor followed through on a veto threat. Perry says the indictment is politically motivated.
