PEARL, Miss. (AP) -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who's running for president, is picking a fight with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, who's not.

Perry, who is struggling to steady his bid for the GOP nomination, launched an outsider's campaign against Washington culture this week and on Thursday challenged Pelosi to debate his plan to overhaul Congress.

She declined the offer, then mocked Perry's forgetful moment in a recent candidates' debate.

Pelosi said: "I'm going to be in Portland in the morning. I'm going to be visiting some of our labs in California in the afternoon. That's two. I can't remember what the third thing is I'm going to be doing."

In the debate, Perry couldn't remember the third of three federal departments he wants to eliminate.
