As I noted yesterday, President Obama is set to launch yet another cross-country jobs campaign, the first stop being in Austin, Texas. In response to the announcement, Texas Gov. Rick Perry applauded the choice, saying that the president is coming to "the right place":

A spokeswoman for Texas governor Rick Perry, who has bitterly opposed much of the president’s domestic agenda, tells National Review that the governor welcomes the president’s visit. “If President Obama is serious about getting our nation’s economy working again, then he’s come to the right place,” says Perry spokeswoman Lucy Nashed. “Texas’ success didn’t happen by accident – it’s a result of policies put in place under Governor Perry’s leadership with a laser focus on making Texas a beacon of economic freedom.”
