Could that icy feeling between Texas Governor Rick Perry and California Governor Jerry Brown grow even colder in the coming days?
Perry is set to kick off a four day swing through the Golden State Sunday with stops set for San Francisco, the Silicon Valley, and in the Los Angeles area. The governor expects to meet with business leaders during each of his stops--the visit coming as a radio ad runs in several California cities--Inviting businesses to think about relocating to Texas.
"This is Texas Governor Rick Perry--And I have a message for California businesses--come check out Texas" the governor said in the ad, adding "there are plenty of reasons Texas has been named the best state for doing business, eight years running."Governor Jerry Brown has dismissed the ads, noticeably scoffing earlier in the week.
"A $26,000 radio buy is the smallest entry in to the media market of California" Brown told reporters this week, adding "As a fellow who has bought tens of millions of dollars in advertising--should I liken it to when you stand by the ocean? No. It's a big nothing."
Governor Perry is scheduled to return to Texas Wednesday.
