Governor Rick Perry endorses Mitt Romney for President:

"Mitt Romney has earned the Republican Presidential nomination through hard-work, a strong organization, and disciplined message of restoring America after nearly four years of failed job-killing policies from President Obama and his administration," said Governor Perry. "So today I join the many conservative Republicans across the nation in endorsing Mitt Romney for President and pledge to him, my constituents and the Republican Party that I will continue to work hard to help defeat President Obama. American jobs, economic stability and national security depend on electing a new president. Mitt 's vision and record of private sector success will put America back on the path of job creation, economic opportunity and limited government."

Office of the Governor
Gov. Rick Perry was joined by EA Games President Frank Gibeau and EA Sports COO Daryl Holt to announce that EA is expanding its Austin operations and creating 150 full-time jobs and 150 contract positions.

"On behalf of the State of Texas, I'd like to congratulate EA on expanding its presence in Austin, and welcome the quality jobs that will be created here as a result," Gov. Perry said.

Break the spend-and-borrow cycle

July 14, 2011
The Washington Post
Rick Perry and Nikki Haley
As governors of states whose residents, like all Americans, are desperate for the restoration of fiscal responsibility in Washington, we are proud to have signed the <a href="http://cutcapbalancepledge.com/">“Cut, Cap and Balance Pledge”</a> amid the debate over once again raising the federal debt ceiling. We oppose an increase in the federal debt limit unless three common-sense conditions are met: substantial cuts in spending; enforceable spending caps to put the country on a path to a balanced budget; and congressional passage of a balanced-budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution. That amendment should include a requirement for a congressional supermajority to approve any raises in taxes. At heart, the pledge represents the reality that yet another temporary fix to our nation’s budgetary woes is no fix at all. The time has come for all of us to begin holding the federal government to the same common-sense standards in place in most states, including South Carolina and Texas.

REAGAN: Reagan's vision lives on in Texas

June 25, 2011
The Reagan Report
Michael Reagan
If you don't believe Reaganomics can still work in this day and age, for whatever reason, I say you should look no further than the state of Texas. Under the leadership of Gov. Rick Perry, Texas has championed and built upon the concepts my father used to rebuild America in the 1980s. The results, again, are unassailable. Over the decade between April 2001 and April 2011, more than 730,000 private-sector jobs were created in the Lone Star State. During that same stretch of time, the next-best state added just over 90,000 and the nation as a whole lost 2.2 million.

Rick Perry: A Texan’s ‘exceptionalism’

George F. Will
