Palin to Campaign With Texas Gov. Perry

AUSTIN, Texas -- Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is heading to Texas to campaign with Republican Gov. Rick Perry on Feb. 7. 

The Perry campaign issued a statement Wednesday saying the former Alaska governor will join Perry at a rally in the Houston area. More details will be released in the coming days. 

Perry says he and Palin share "conservative values of limited government, low taxes and individual freedom." Palin endorsed Perry in his re-election big last year, and it was expected that she would campaign with him at some point. 

Perry faces U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and party activist Debra Medina on March 2 in the Republican primary.
