SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry is visiting California, and he hopes to return home with something more than a Disneyland souvenir.

The former Republican presidential candidate starts meeting with business leaders Monday, trying to persuade them to move jobs to Texas. He will visit the San Francisco Bay area, Los Angeles and Orange County through Wednesday.

The trip follows a radio ad in which Perry criticized California’s business climate. Perry has been touting his state’s low taxes and lax regulations.

California Gov. Jerry Brown says California has been adding more jobs than any other state. Non-farm payrolls increased by nearly 226,000 jobs in 2012.

He also wondered whether Perry might have a change of heart after arriving: “A lot of these Texans,” Brown says, “they come here, they don’t go back.”
