After New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said some conservatives have “no place in the state of New York,” Fox News personality Sean Hannity said he’d had it. He added up that – living in New York – roughly 60 cents of every dollar he makes goes to the government, and the location is simply not worth it.
Hannity appeared on TheBlaze TV’s “Dana” Friday to discuss the latest in current events and the speculation about where he will move, but host Dana Loesch had a surprise in store.
She had arranged for some of the most powerful people in Texas to speak about why Hannity should move to the Lone Star state, and aired the video before their discussion.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Rep. Louie Gohmert, Sen. Ted Cruz, and Atty. Gen. Greg Abbott, who is also running for governor, all appeared to speak out about why Hannity should join them in Texas.
“There are two types of Texans,” Perry said with a smile. “Those who were born here, and those who got here as fast as they could. So Sean, get here as fast as you can, brother! You were made for Texas.”
Cruz added that he was thrilled to hear Hannity had decided to “leave New York City and come back to America.”

Hannity said he was “humbled” by the support, and added that he has “never met a Texan that [he did] not love.”
“The people from Texas are just awesome,” he added. “So it really is coming down — we kinda have four states. Florida, Texas, Tennessee, and Georgia, because we lived four years, my wife and I, in Georgia.”
But Hannity and Loesch also discussed current events, particularly the contentious state of the Republican Party.
The Fox News host asserted that if the Republican establishment can’t learn from former President Ronald Reagan and the 1994 “Contract With America,” it is “useless.”
“They’re nothing but a carbon copy of the Democratic Party, and if anything, I blame them more than the Democrats, because I would expect that they should know better,” Hannity said, growing increasingly heated. “Right now I find them uninspiring. I find them lacking an agenda. I find that there are many institutional bureaucrats in the Republican Party that would rather see the Tea Party lose, so that they can maintain their own power.”
