Texas Gov. Rick Perry will resist the pull to get into the White House race, he said again on Wednesday.

“I can’t say I’m not tempted, but the fact is, this isn’t something that I want to do,” Perry said.Perry’s comments came during a fly-over tour of the Texas-Mexico border with Fox News host Greta van Susteren.

In the interview, the staunchly anti-Washington governor strongly criticized the border fence currently under construction, saying the federal government is failing to keep people safe.

But instead of running for president, Perry said he had to focus on Texas legislative session and that he hoped “that person will come forward that can win the presidency that we can all get behind.”
