TX Gov. Perry heading back to Missouri

   Texas Governor Rick Perry will be back in Missouri at the end of the month.  

   Perry had created a buzz earlier this summer with an ad campaign that attempted to lure businesses away from Missouri.  He visited the state to lobby, unsuccessfully, for an override of Governor Nixon's tax cut veto.  

   Perry, fellow former GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum, and anti-tax advocate Grover Norquist will all address the Conservative Political Action Conference, or "CPAC" gathering St. Louis.  The regional convention of the American Conservative Union is a showcase for the conservative political movement.

   Other confirmed participants include Missouri's junior Senator Roy Blunt and Kansas Governor Sam Brownback.

   Texas Governor Rick Perry says that unless Missouri lawmakers override Governor Jay Nixon's veto of an income tax cut, he won't be the only governor trying to lure business from the Show-me State.  Perry made the comments Thursday evening while speaking at a pro-tax cut rally in Chesterfield.  

   Perry had spent the day in the St. Louis area pushing for the override of Nixon's veto of House Bill 253.

   Nixon crisscrossed the state Thursday, telling crowds that the tax cut would imperil critical services like education and risk the state's Triple-A tax rating. 

   Both men spent Thursday morning discussing their positions with McGraw Milhaven on his KTRS morning show.  Nixon continued to criticize the Texas Governor for trying to "poach" business, while Perry said it's merely competition in a very competitive arena.

   Perry also told McGraw that $40 million in business leaves Missouri for Texas every year, although he could not name any specific business. Nixon contests that figure.

   The Missouri Governor said the bottom line is that states should be competing against the world for a piece of the economic pie, not slicing into each other's portion.

   The story made national headlines after KTRS management rejected Perry's ad campaign aimed at convincing Missouri businesses to move to the Lone Star state.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry has sent an email to friends and top fundraisers promising to reveal "exciting future plans" during an event next week in San Antonio.

 

   The message doesn't provide further details or even a location for the planned Monday midday event, saying simply that more details will be forthcoming. But Perry has said he will soon announce if he plans to seek a fourth full term as governor next year.

 

   The Republican is already the longest-serving governor in Texas history and America's longest-sitting governor.

 

   He also hasn't ruled out a second run for president in 2016, after his previous bid for the GOP White House nomination fizzled in 2011. But Perry has also said he won't decide on that matter until later this year.

   ILLINOIS (AP) - Another governor is trying to lure away Illinois companies.

   Florida Gov. Rick Scott sent a letter to Illinois' top 100 companies this week asking them to buy a "one way" ticket to Florida. The Republican says Florida is undergoing "an incredible economic turnaround" and touts the state's credit ratings.

   Scott also scrutinizes Illinois' high taxes, including a 2011 income tax increase.

   His letter comes the same week Texas Gov. Rick Perry was in Chicago trying to poach companies. Perry says he wants to spark a competition between the states and has criticized Illinois' nearly $100 billion in pension debt.

   Governors from Indiana, Wisconsin and New Jersey have made similar attempts.

   Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn has dismissed them as publicity attempts and says Illinois is a great place to do business.
