DES MOINES, IOWA: Ross Perot continues to tease supporters who want to know just who's going to run for President on the ticket of the new party he's creating. Perot once again said he would not be the candidate, telling a gathering of Iowa businessman that "We are busy creating a new party that will belong to the people of the United States and not to the special interests." TIME's Laurence Barrett says that Perot probably won't make a decision on who will get his party's nomination until April or May: "Regardless of what he says right now, Ross Perot may yet run. Ideally, he would prefer to get an established political leader, such as former Oklahoma Governor David Boren to fill that spot. We won't know Perot's strategy until late spring or early summer."
