He runs a business-friendly State, which is why many businesses fleeing California and other states relocate to Texas, and there's lots of wide-open spaces to welcome them. I understand that Tesla is considering Texas as a site for their huge new "gigabattery" plant which will employ 6500 people. The last I heard, a decision is expected by the end of the year on which of the four States that are bidding will be the winner.

    Greetings, Erik.
    You know nothing about Texas. Even conservatives begrudgingly voted for Perry. They really don't like him. Tesla is considering Austin, the liberal mecca here in Texas, but that has less to do with "business friendly" and more to do with the highly educated populace that Austin has to offer, thanks to it's long-term investments into education, something that Republicans despise.

    Texas economy is booming and no debt, California is in debt, why? Why are businesses moving out of California. Better think about it.

    and maybe you should reaserch your states laws.

    one of the charges perry was indicted on was "coercion of a public servant or voter".

    and according to Texas's statuary law



    TEX PE. CODE ANN. 36.03 : Texas Statutes - Section 36.03: COERCION OF PUBLIC SERVANT OR VOTER
    Of course her being drunk had nothing to do with it or even competent. You see in the liberal world it is management that incompetent and lower level employees are never wrong.

    I mentioned in response to another poster's claim that a Governor can veto a law for any reason he wants to.

    That claim is obviously untrue, as my question revealed. Since my question revealed the untruthfulness of his claim, that proves that it is relevant

    LOL, of course the economic conditions had nothing to do with it. If it was all about education they would relocate to the Ivy League area and the brilliance of the Northeast. You simply cannot accept the reality that it is business environment not the highly educated populace that drives business decisions.

    by that logic, idaho senator Mike Crapo should have resigned after he received a D.W.I 3 years ago, and yet he is still in office.

    In addition to never answering direct questions you are delusional, a Governor can veto a bill for any reason he wants and that veto can be overridden.

    The only cheap thing I see is your lies.

    and perry is interfearing in local issues by demanding that the district attorney resign simply for driving drunk.
