Texas Gov. Rick Perry will headline the Republican Party of Virginia’s Grassroots Luncheon on Sept. 14, Chairman Pat Mullins announced today.

“We’re absolutely thrilled that Governor Perry will be with us for this event,” Mullins said. “Governor Perry’s record in Texas of lower taxes, limited government, and job growth looks familiar to anyone who pays attention to Virginia politics.

“Like our own Gov. Bob McDonnell, Gov. Perry has balanced his state’s budget by making prudent decisions, rather than treating taxpayers like an ATM.”
