Perry Looking for Jobs in the Northeast

By Bill O'Neil

He's ready to hit the road again--and this time--Governor Rick Perry has the Northeast in his sights. 

Governor Rick Perry will arrive in the Northeast Sunday--where he is expected to meet with leaders in the firearms, pharmaceutical, and financial sectors--hoping to attract companies and jobs to Texas. 

Ahead of that trip, ads are already running in New York and Connecticut--featuring the Governor.  

"Texas is calling--your opportunity awaits" the Governor said in the ads--joined by a number of others--including Dallas Cowboys great Emmit Smith and one-time gubernatorial candidate--and hair care magnate--Farouk Shami. 

"I brought 12-hundred jobs from China to Texas--where opportunities are plentiful--and regulations are fair" Shami said in one of the two ads that's running.  

The Governor has made two saimilar trips in recent months--one to California--the other to Chicago.
