ST. CHARLES, Mo. (September 27, 2013)--Texas Gov. Rick Perry made a return trip Friday to Missouri, whose Democratic governor he criticized during an August visit for vetoing tax-cut legislation.
Perry scheduled a stop Friday afternoon in St. Charles to unveil a nonprofit group called Americans for Economic Freedom.
On Saturday, he'll speak to GOP conservatives at a regional meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference in St. Charles.
Perry met privately in August with the Missouri Chamber of Commerce in Clayton and held a political rally in Chesterfield.
He also criticized Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon's veto in a series of late-summer radio ads while urging Missouri businesses to relocate to Texas.
Perry is considering whether to run for president in 2016 after an unsuccessful 2012 effort.
