In efforts to continue to honor his pledge to keep his focus on the Texas Legislature while they remain in session, Texas Governor Rick Perry focused his full attention to that legislative session while in New York today, where he was the keynote speaker at a Republican fundraiser, and was interviewed on Fox News.
He demonstrated his razor-focus on the legislative session back in Texas by speaking about the Presidential race and answering questions about his possible candidacy for the office. At the fundraiser, he replaced Donald Trump on the program, who reportedly canceled his appearance at the event because of Trump’s reluctance to put much thought into the legislative session in Texas.
Prior to Perry’s arrival in New York, the Texas Governor was busy focusing on the legislative session from Los Angeles, where he bashed President Obama in a speech there, while totally focusing on legislative deliberations back in Texas.
When Perry finishes focusing on the legislative session in New York, he will continue working really hard on the legislative session in North Carolina, at a meeting of the Republican Governor’s Association. He is then scheduled to fly to New Orleans for another Republican event sure to attract most Republican candidates for President, who Perry hopes will all gather with him and help him continue to totally focus on the Texas legislature’s deliberations.
Meanwhile, state legislators in Texas, some of whom were still in the state Capitol late Tuesday night passing Perry’s “sanctuary cities” legislation, which has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Perry running for President, were reportedly inspired and strengthened in their efforts to pass Perry’s legislative agenda at the mere thought that Perry is completely focused on their important efforts.
