Governor Rick Perry vs. Governor Brown

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Governor Rick Perry wants to boost the economy by convincing more companies from out-of-state to move to Texas. 

Perry will be hitting the air waves throughout the rest of the week. His ad is thirty seconds long encouraging businesses to leave that state and move to Texas.

The ads will play on the radio throughout five major cities in California. According to the Governors office, San Francisco, Sacramento, Los Angeles, the Inland Empire and San Diego are on the list. 

California's Governor Jerry Brown, didn't seem to worry about Perry's actions. 

"It's not a serious story guys, you take a little radio ad, all you guys run like lapdogs to report it," said Brown. 

A local Industrial Realty Specialist says he has been working on bringing in a lot of companies to Texas.

"We've been brining companies from California to here for years," said Bland Cromwell. "California is a difficult state to do business in, there's a lot of issues besides the one that you see in the press with their financial state, but logistically they're challenged."

Cromwell also said the future of businesses in the area are looking good, and vacant properties are starting to fill up.
