ST. LOUIS (AP) - Two people familiar with his plans tell The Associated Press that former Texas Gov. Rick Perry is dropping out of the 2016 campaign for president.
    
The longest-serving governor in Texas history will announce his plans during a speech Friday night in St. Louis before conservative activists.
    
The people familiar with Perry's plans spoke on condition of anonymity, because they were not authorized to announce his plans before the speech.
