Fox News reports that Texas governor Rick Perry will announce that he's running for president on Saturday: 

Texas Gov. Rick Perry will make "a definitive announcement that he is in the 2012 race for the presidency Saturday," aides told Fox News. The language is significant. For several days the Perry camp has said he would signal his intentions and announce later. "This is it," the sources explain. No exploratory committee, no more deliberation. Perry will spend most of next week on the road officially campaigning.
