FIGURE EIGHT, NC (AP/WECT) - -

Texas Governor and former presidential contender Rick Perry was in southeastern North Carolina this weekend.

David Rouzer, the Republican running for North Carolina's 7th District U.S. House seat, posted a Twitter photo of himself standing next to Perry on Figure Eight Island Saturday morning.

"…the Governor was in town this weekend and wanted to meet David during his visit," said Tyler Foote, Rouzer's campaign manager.

He explained a Rouzer supporter hosted the "coffee meet and greet" at a Figure Eight Island home.

Details of Perry's visit are unknown. A message left with his press office wasn't immediately returned.

Perry hasn't ruled out a 2016 presidential campaign after his short-lived 2012 run for the GOP nomination.
