Not every Texan is cheering on Rick Perry as he travels to California in hopes of bringing tax-weary businesses back to his home state.

The Lone Star Project, a Democratic organization, aired its own radio advertisement in Sacramento on Tuesday calling the Texan governor's trip a publicity stunt.

"Hello, California, this is Texas," drawled a narrator. "Well, it looks like Rick Perry got out again."

The advertisement praises Texas but criticizes Perry, whose image took a hit following a gaffe-filled presidential campaign.

“He’s trying to rehabilitate himself," said Matt Angle, the organization's director. "He embarrassed himself in the presidential campaign.”

The Lone Star Project spent $5,000 on its radio advertisement.
