STATEMENT FROM GOV. PERRY ON GOV. PALIN’S DECISION TO STEP DOWN AS GOVERNOR OF ALASKA

July 3, 2009
AUSTIN, TX – Texas Governor Rick Perry today made the following statement regarding Gov. Sarah Palin’s decision to step down. “Sarah Palin is a good friend and accomplished governor who will continue to be a strong voice of conservatism in American politics. Her state and our country are better off as a result of her tenure as governor and her candidacy for vice president. “I expect she will continue to work on the issues facing our country as conservatives strive to undo the damage being done by an out-of-control congress and federal government.” ###

Governor Perry's Instavision Interview.

Wednesday, Governor Perry linked up via webcam for a PJTV interview with Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit. The two discussed social media, Texas' balanced budget, cap and trade, tort reform, border security, and upcoming TEA parties. The Governor explained the four ways to keep a state on the right track: 1) keep taxes low; 2) keep your regulatory climate fair and predictable; 3) create a legal system that prevents oversuing; and 4) make education accountable. You can watch the entire interview here:

The Duel Continues

Yesterday, as midnight of June 30th approached, David White and Jonathon McClellan challenged one another to an online fundraising duel.

The results are in, and Jon is the clear winner. But, hold on, there is a twist to this story.

Jon raised $1875 from 11 donations online yesterday. David raised $1360 from 18 donations. In some ways, David's numbers (more individual contributors) are more impressive, but ultimately Jon gets the win.

Neither David nor Jon are content to let their fundraising duel end there. The stakes are now much, much higher:

This is going to be fun.

Create your own personal fundraising page at http://www.RickPerry.org/fundraise, and challenge yourself or your friends to your own goal. The June 30 reporting period deadline has come and gone, but the campaign is still raising money, and every 5 and 10 dollar contribution sends a statement that Governor Perry's principled, conservative leadership is what is right for Texas.
