AUSTIN - Texas Governor Rick Perry, a fierce conservative critic of the federal government, changed his stance on Friday and said he will consider seeking the 2012 Republican US presidential nomination.

"I'm going to think about it," Perry told reporters after he signed a bill requiring Texans to show photo identification to vote.

Perry had said repeatedly he would not seek the Republican nomination to challenge Democratic President Barack Obama next year, although he has been urged to get in the race by some conservatives unhappy with the current field.

Perry, the longest-serving governor in Texas history, is a steadfast conservative who was an early supporter of the small-government, low-tax Tea Party movement. He has frequently clashed with the federal government and Obama.
