Yes, we know Rick Perry hasn't declared he is a candidate for president — yet. But on the theory that it's better to be prepared than not, we've created a one-stop, curated home for data and information on Perry's political career, policy positions, campaign finances and personal history. We're calling it Perrypedia, and it can be found at texastribune.org/perrypedia.
At Perrypedia, you'll find all of our Perry coverage to date organized by specific categories. You'll also find shortcuts to our Perry-related data apps and visualizations, photography and multimedia content as well as his Trib directory page (where we have his personal financial disclosure statements dating to 1993) and our PerryTracker, which keeps tabs on his travel around the United States. Under links, you'll find a variety of helpful pointers to political websites and blogs and the most indispensible stories written about Perry in the past. We'll be adding more links in the coming days. Finally, PerryWire — similar to TribWire — will keep you up to date on the latest Perry news produced by other media.
We'll continue to expand our Perrypedia features in the coming days and weeks. And if he doesn't run for president? Well, we'll have a very helpful compendium of information on the longest-serving governor of Texas, whatever he might do in the future.
