Perry Campaigns in Spartanburg, South Carolina

Texas Governor Rick Perry in 2012, who briefly emerged as a contender for the Republican party’s presidential nominee.


Texas is taking over California airwaves, making a not-so-subtle plea to Golden State businesses to pack up and move east.

Texas Governor Rick Perry voices the 30-second radio spot, and it will run on Sacramento and Central Valley stations this week.

You can hear the spot here, or below is the full text:

“Building a business is tough, but I hear building a business in California is next to impossible. This is Texas Gov. Rick Perry, and I have a message for California businesses: come check out Texas. There are plenty of reasons Texas has been named the best state for doing business for eight years running. Visit texaswideopenforbusiness.com, and see why our low taxes, sensible regulations and fair legal system are just the thing to get your business moving to Texas.”

The air time is being paid for by a public-private partnership that markets Texas as a business destination.

    Hes absolutly right. There are too many restrictions on small busesses in CA that actually tell u No. U cant do business in a paticulr spot where business is needed. So discouraging.
