One supporter shouted that Texas should become its own nation and Perry responded by saying "let's show the rest of the country how to do it right."
NewsChannel 11 spoke to Gov. Perry about his re-election campaign. "I'll be real honest I'm not sure there is a campaign yet until folks filed and paid money. Lots are saying I'm going to, I'm going to, but until filing deadline I just stay focused on trying to run best state in nation," says Perry.
Market Street was the governor's second stop of the day. Wednesday afternoon he spoke to the Lubbock Area Association of Health underwriters.
