Governor Perry Launches Re-Election Campaign In Lubbock

Governor Rick Perry made a stop in Lubbock Tuesday morning, to launch his new re-election campaign.

In Tuesday's speech at Texas Tech, the governor outlined education, jobs, the economy and tightening up on boarder security. Perry also said his two main goals, if re-elected, would be to cut property taxes and plan a school finance reform.

"Are you proud of Texas today? Are you ready to join me in this great cause, to fight with every fiber of your being from now until election day, so that the next generation can be just as proud of Texas as you are and I am?" Governor Rick Perry said.

Many others are in the running for the governor's seat. Carol Keeton Strayhorn is a Republican running on the Independent ticket. She was in Lubbock last week for her campaign. Also, hoping to make the ballot as an Independent, humorist Kinky Friedman. Among Democrats, former Texas Supreme Court Justice Bob Gammage, and former Congressman Chris Bell are vying for their party's nomination. The governor faces only minor GOP opposition from Larry Kilgore, Rhett R. Smith and Star Locke.
