Republican Gov. Rick Perry has decided not to spend time seeking endorsements from Texas newspapers before the March 2 primary.
Perry spokesman Mark Miner said Monday that Perry will not be attending editorial board meetings at newspapers. Miner said there are better uses of the governor's time.
The Austin American-Statesman first reported Perry's decision, noting that many Republicans believe GOP voters are distrustful of newspaper editorial boards.
Some newspapers may endorse Perry anyway, even though he doesn't spend time meeting with them.
