Dear Commons Community,
The Daily News is reporting that there’s a Texas style feud brewing between Rick Perry and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Perry, the Texas governor who became something of a laughing stock during his bid for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination last year and is considered to be a possible 2016 Republican presidential contender, took a swipe at Andrew Cuomo during a policy forum on Thursday.
“You could say that the economic climate that has allowed (Texas) to grow and create jobs, he’d dearly love to be able to stand up and say, ‘We did this in New York.’ But he can’t.”
Perry also said Cuomo, “if he were truthful” would admit that he’d want to be a Texan.
“I’m sure that I couldn’t get all 49 other governors to admit that they would want to be Texans,” Perry said, according to The Associated Press.
Cuomo administration officials did not immediately respond to Perry’s jab.
Let the fun begin, we only have just under four years left until the next presidential election.
