Perry Takes Low-Taxes Show To Show Me State

AUSTIN (August 20, 2013)--Texas Gov. Rick Perry takes his low-taxes and conservative-politics road show to Missouri later this month.

Perry is considering a presidential race in 2016 and has already made similar trips to California, New York and Illinois to promote what he calls the Texas miracle.

He says his policies of low taxes, minimal regulation and limits on lawsuits made Texas a leader in job creation, although critics complain about the state's poor schools, high poverty and low health insurance rates.

Perry's office said the governor will travel to Missouri on Aug. 29 to meet with political and business leaders.

Ahead of the trip, a privately-funded group called Texas One began running TV commercials Monday across Missouri to promote Perry and his policies.

The group will also pay for Perry's travel and accommodations.
