(AP) With eight months left in office, Texas Gov. Rick Perry is hitting the road hard, touting his state as America's best place to do business.


Perry isn't shy about job poaching in other states and he scored a big win when Toyota announced it was moving its U.S. headquarters from California to Texas.


That the world's largest automaker is leaving the nation's leading blue state for its No. 1 red one is a victory Perry can trumpet as he gears up for an expected second White House run.


If Perry seeks the presidency, he's expected to tie Texas' job growth to his low-tax, low-regulation approach as governor. But his critics will note the high proportion of low-wage jobs in Texas, and that many blue states also have robust economies.
