Texas Gov. Rick Perry will join Gov. Tom Corbett to kick off his re-election campaign in Western Pennsylvania on Wednesday in Canonsburg.

The Lone Star State Republican, who has served two-and-a-half terms as governor, said last summer he will not seek re-election. Perry will lead a 3 p.m. rally for Corbett at the Hilton Gardens Inn Southpointe lobby.

The event is billed as “Energy Families for Corbett.” Several gas drilling companies have headquarters at the Southpointe industrial park.

Corbett ran unopposed in Tuesday's Republican primary for his party's nomination.

The Shaler native will face Democrat Tom Wolf, a York County businessman, in the November election.

Perry unsuccessfully sought the GOP nomination for president in 2012. He indicated he would try again in 2016, when he met with GOP strategists last month in New Hampshire, the first primary state.
