Perry Aims to Bring Missouri Businesses to Texas
Texas Gov. Rick Perry is running radio and television ads criticizing Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of a tax cut bill and urging Missouri businesses to move to Texas.
“There is a state where businesses flourish and jobs are created…Texas,” Perry says in one radio ad. The Texas governor goes on to claim that $40 million are leaving Missouri annually for the Lone Star State “because Missouri families and businesses know Texas is a great place to live and work.”
The week of radio spots, costing $100,000, will run on stations in St. Louis, Springfield, Columbia, Joplin, and Kansas City. The nine-day, $106,400 TV ad buy will air in St. Louis, Springfield, and mid-Missouri.
