A former presidential runner is urging Californians to move to Texas, where he says business can thrive without burdensome taxes and regulations.

In a 30-second radio spot, Texas Governor Rick Perry (R) invites California businesses to "check out Texas," as the climate to build a business in California is "next to impossible." Perry touts Texas as a great place for businesses in the ad that will run on six radio stations in The Golden State, including stations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and Sacramento.

"This is Texas Governor Rick Perry, and I have a message for California businesses: Come check out Texas," he says. "There are plenty of reasons Texas has been named the best state for doing business for eight years running. Visit TexasWideOpenForBusiness.com and see why our low taxes, sensible regulations, and fair legal system are just the thing to get your business moving to Texas."

Analysts have predicted that California's high tax rate and tough regulations will cause a mass exodus of businesses to states like Texas. Governor Jerry Brown's (D) response to Perry's ad is a call for Texans to check out California.
