Texas Gov. Rick Perry returns to Missouri

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — Republican Gov. Rick Perry of Texas returned to Missouri Friday to help unveil a new nonprofit group focusing on job creation through low-tax state policies.

His St. Charles visit to promote Americans for Economic Freedom came after an August stop in which he criticized Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon for vetoing tax-cut legislation. State lawmakers subsequently failed in a veto override attempt.

On Saturday, Perry will speak to GOP conservatives at a regional meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Perry also met privately in August with the Missouri Chamber of Commerce in Clayton and held a political rally in Chesterfield. And he urged Missouri businesses to relocate to Texas in a series of radio ads.

Perry is considering whether to run for president in 2016 after an unsuccessful 2012 effort.
