Texas Gov. Rick Perry will have minor surgery on his back
The surgery will not impact the governor's itinerary, his spokesman said.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry, considering a run for the White House, will undergo a minor surgical procedure in a couple of weeks.
Perry spokesman Mark Miner confirmed Thursday that the governor will go under the knife for a back ailment on July 1. Miner told The Texas Tribune that the surgery would not impact the governor's itinerary.
“The governor is going to undergo a minor medical procedure to repair a re-occurring back ailment," Miner said. "This procedure, which was scheduled months ago, will will be done on July 1 and will not affect his current schedule.”
Perry is an avid jogger and previously had surgery on both knees.
The governor, back from his trip to the Big Apple, will appear this weekend at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans.
