A California family leader is glad to see former presidential hopeful Rick Perry calling out The Golden State for creating a hostile environment for business.

Texas Governor Rick Perry (R) this week took a recruitment trip to California, courting businesses to his state. The former presidential candidate visited parts of Los Angeles, the Silicon Valley, San Francisco, and Orange County following the release of his 30-second radio ad in which he claims California's high tax rate and tough regulations make the state a hostile climate for business owners.

Thomasson, Randy (SaveCalifornia.com)Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, is pleased to see the Republican making such a bold move.

"Rick Perry is doing what the California media will not: Talk about how the big government and the big welfare programs and the high tax programs in California are running people and businesses out of California for greener pastures for their businesses and for their personal incomes," Thomasson contends.

"California ranks 48th -- that's nearly the worst in the nation -- for a state business tax climate. And Texas? Well, it's number nine; it's the ninth best in the nation."

The Texan's trip to The Golden State has garnered quite a bit of media attention and reaction from Governor Jerry Brown (D-CA), who says Texas businesses should consider California.

Thousands of California residents do move to Texas each year, and some predict that recent tax hikes in The Golden State will send more residents fleeing.
