Rick Perry heading to California to recruit business

PerryTexas Gov. Rick Perry has found a way to keep himself in the media spotlight: nipping at the heels of Gov. Jerry Brown.

Perry caused a media splash this week when he took out a statewide radio ad urging California businesses to relocate to the Lone Star state.

Now, Perry is following up with a three-day swing through the state that will take him to San Francisco, the Silicon Valley, Los Angeles and Orange County, according to a release from Perry's office.

Brown this week dismissed Perry's efforts as a "a big nothing," noting that people from around the world continually come to recruit California's talent.

Perry recently recruited Jeff Miller, a major fundraiser for California Republicans, to relocate to Austin to help in Perry's efforts to attract California businesses.
