Texas Governor Rick Perry, a possible Republican candidate for the 2016 presidential race, greets audience members at a "NH GOP Victory Rally" in Stratham,By Ted Siefer PORTSMOUTH N.H. (Reuters) - Texas Governor Rick Perry has sought to parlay attention over a felony indictment into a fresh political push in New Hampshire, the crucial presidential primary state where his dismal showing in 2012 led him to drop out of the race. Perry returned to New Hampshire on Friday and Saturday in his first visit to the state since his presidential bid unraveled, laying out his message for a business-friendly government, stronger border security and a more muscular foreign policy. With Congress in recess and President Barack Obama on vacation, Perry has become one of the most talked-about politicians since he was indicted last week on two felony counts of abusing power for trying to force a Democratic district attorney convicted of drunk driving out of office by cutting off funds for an integrity unit in her office. Perry has held news conferences to denounce the indictment and turned his police booking into a campaign-like event, speaking to cheering supporters before and after he posed for a mugshot.
