Governor Perry Makes Public Plea To "Run Away" Democrats

Governor Rick Perry wants protesting Texas Democrats to return home from New Mexico.

Thursday he made a public plea at the Texas Hospital Association Headquarters in Austin. "What's important is we have work to do in this state and there are 11 senators who are bringing all of that work to a halt." said Governor Perry.

Perry says that by staying away, the Texas Senators are not only hurting the chances for redistricting, but also jeopardizing legislation to improve health-care funding.

The senators have been in Albuquerque since Monday.
