About 250 people were expected to attend an Oklahoma City fundraiser Monday evening for Texas Gov. Rick Perry to support his bid for the presidency.
The event at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum was closed to reporters and no media availability was scheduled. Few details were released about the fundraiser, the second of the day for Perry in Oklahoma. A fundraising lunch was held in Tulsa.
Different levels of financial support were available for those attending the Monday evening fundraiser for Perry, who earlier this month announced his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination.
Earlier in Tulsa, U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Tulsa, formally endorsed Perry, who became governor of Texas in December 2000 when then-Gov. George W. Bush resigned to become president. Perry was elected to a full term as governor in 2002 and was re-elected in 2006 and 2010
Former University of Oklahoma football coach Barry Switzer was among those helping with the Oklahoma City fundraiser for Perry.
