Gov. Perry Returns To New York City With Message Of Texas Miracle
Updated: Tuesday, April 22 2014, 11:31 AM CDT
Gov. Rick Perry is trying to take another bite out of the Big Apple this week in his latest interstate missionary trip to spread the word of the Texas Miracle.
Perry left for New York City Tuesday and is scheduled to stay until Thursday, according to his office. He will meet with local employers and attend a reception hosted by TexasOne, the public-private partnership that recruits businesses to move to the state.
It's his second swing through the nation's largest city in less than a year. Last June, Perry spent five days in both New York and Connecticut trying to wrangle businesses with promises of lower taxes and fewer regulations.
Perry has spent much of his final term on similar trips across the country. His various forays have fired speculations about a possible presidential run in 2016 and they've also provided fodder for old-fashioned partisan squabbling.
Gov. Jerry Brown of California famously called Perry's attempt to lure Golden State employers "barely a fart" and Maryland's Martin O'Malley said Perry is "all hat and no cattle" ahead of his visit there.
This time around, it's a member of New York's city council who's preemptively striking back against Texas' longest-serving governor.
"Rick Perry's traveling circus isn't going to persuade New Yorkers who know a sideshow when they see one," Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito said in a statement on Monday. "The truth is Rick Perry has pushed a textbook right-wing agenda that is anti-middle-class, anti-woman and something New Yorkers will overwhelmingly and easily reject."
