Missouri Republicans Help Perry Poach Businesses

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) is headed to Missouri this week in an attempt to lure businesses back to the Lone Star State, the Kansas City Star reports.

"This year, the former GOP presidential hopeful has swaggered into a handful of blue states around the country to court companies with a sales pitch of low taxes and less government regulation. But this trip is different. When Perry arrives in St. Louis this week, he'll be doing so with the blessing of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry."

St. Louis Post-Dispatch: "Missouri Republicans and business leaders are preparing to lay out the welcome mat this week for Texas Gov. Rick Perry. And Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon on Tuesday came pretty close to calling them economic traitors for it."
