Perry Riding Into Maryland On Business-Rustling Raid

Updated: Thursday, September 12 2013, 10:56 AM CDT

Gov. Rick Perry will ride into Maryland later this month on yet another business-rustling raid sure to keep his name in national headlines.

Blazing the trail for the Sept. 18 trip will be a 60-second radio ad and a 30-second TV spot that will run in several local markets ahead of Perry's arrival.

In those ads, the governor boasts that Texas has "limited government, low taxes, and a fair legal system."

It's the latest in an ongoing series of blitzes on other states for Perry. He's already made the controversial trips to California, Connecticut, New York, and most recently Missouri.

Governors in those states accused Perry of trying to undermine their economies and meddle in their affairs. Indeed, while he was in the Show-Me State, Gov. Perry also urged Missouri lawmakers to override their Democratic governor's recent veto of tax cuts.  That effort failed Wednesday night when the state's Republican-controlled legislature ultimately decided to uphold Gov. Jay Nixon's veto.

That defeat hasn't dulled Gov. Perry's eagerness to use taxes as a key tool in his Maryland expedition. A release from his office announcing the trip cites the business-friendly Tax Foundation's claim that "Maryland ranks among the 10 worst state tax climates at #41."
