Connecticut Democrats are using Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s jobs-poaching trip to the state in a fundraising email.
“This afternoon, Rick Perry will be in Hartford to try to lure Connecticut business away to Texas,” Jonathan Harris, executive director of the Connecticut Democratic party, wrote in an email. “This isn’t about gun manufacturers; he is meeting with pharmaceutical and financial services companies as well. We need your help to tell Rick Perry to stay away from our jobs! Please donate $10 to help make sure that people around the state know what is happening today.”
The email bolsters the notion that the so-called battle over jobs between Texas and Connecticut is nothing more than a publicity stunt for all involved.
