AUSTIN (AP) — He’s at it again — in Chicago, this time.

Gov. Rick Perry announced Monday a week-long print and Internet ad buy in Crain’s Chicago Business Journal and on chicagobusiness.com claiming that the “Escape route from Illinois to economic freedom leads to Texas.”

The $38,450 campaign touts what Perry calls Texas’ business-friendly climate and is sponsored by a public-private marketing firm.

In February, the firm financed California radio ads featuring Perry denigrating that state’s taxes and regulation.

That campaign preceded a Perry trip to California to recruit jobs, and made national headlines.

Perry said the Illinois ad buy coincides with a special Illinois section going up on a website devoted to recruiting jobs to Texas.

He said he wants to “spur competition between states and recruit jobs and employees to Texas.”
