HOUSTON -- At the moment, Rick Perry's camp confirms the governor still plans to participate in Wednesday night's GOP debate in California.
The governor's campaign just released his schedule showing two events in California after the debate. It appears he will leave the wildfires to appear Wednesday night in California and will continue on with planned fundraisers Thursday and Friday. It appears his brief break from campaigning hasn't hurt.

Good, that’s what professionals are for.
Well, he’s just proven that he’s smarter than McCain.
I don’t think we’ll know until tomorrow if he’ll attend. If they are contained in the populated areas he’ll be there but last I heard they hadn’t been yet.
And nah...perry will be critisized no matter what decision he makes. Life of a frontrunner.
Good, we needed him in Texas and now we need him in Washington.
He’ll be gone for a few hours and he’s 2 hours away.
It’s not like he’s going to Hawaii for two weeks.
>> “Life of a frontrunner” <<
He’s the clown running in front of the dog and pony circus?
IF you'd rather NOT be pinged FReepmail me.
IF you'd like to be added FReepmail me. Thanks.
Yeh, don’t hold your breath...LOL
Personally, living 12 miles from a raging fire....it isn’t the best time for Governor Perry to leave Texas.
Good. I’m curious as to what he’ll say and how he’ll come off.
How much fire was Rick putting out anyway?
/damn, I can't believe I'm sticking up for the guy..
Palin supports Perry
Palin just gave advice for GOPer to not trash its candidates.
So are you just another phony Palin supporter using her as cover to astroturf Perry here.
It’s not as though he can’t stay up to date through email, text, or phone.
And it only requires a signature to rubberstamp whatever government funds are required, once the Texas legislature passes the bills, he can fly back to Texas right after the debates and sign those bills.
It’s not as though this is his 19th golf game of the year, right?
I thought people were supporting his initial decision to miss the debate? - what changed?
I am no Perry fan at all, but since he entered the race, he should spend a couple hours at the debate.
He isn’t fighting the fires himself as Governor. He isn’t off for a two week vacation at Martha’s Vineyard.
People should pick on things that really matter instead of sniping over stuff like this.
He is the Governor of the state , Perry Hater !
