Gov. Rick Perry announced Thursday he will make Maryland the next stop on his “move to Texas” tour. He is planning to visit the state next week. As he has prior to previous trips, Perry launched television and radio ads, touting Texas’ “limited government, low taxes and a fair legal system.”

As in the past, the group Texas One is footing the $500,000 advertising bill and is paying for Perry’s travel expenses.

On Wednesday, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley dismissed Perry’s ads as a “tired old PR gimmick.”
