WASHINGTON (AP) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry says he'll need more preparation if he runs for president again in 2016.

Perry says he learned a lot when he ran last time. He tells CBS "This Morning" it was a humbling experience.

The Republican governor says he recommends not having major back surgery six weeks before you start running. And he says that whether he runs for president or not, preparation on foreign policy, economics and other issues will serve him well.

Perry had a lot of support when he ran in 2012. But he entered the race late and lost his edge after making several verbal blunders during the GOP debates.

The Texas governor is in New York this week promoting Texas business.
