AUSTIN (AP) - Gov. Rick Perry is heading to Illinois to recruit businesses to relocate to Texas.

The former presidential candidate made the announcement Wednesday, after purchasing $42,000 in radio advertising in the Chicago area. Perry calls Texas’ business-friendly. The ad is paid for by Texas One, a public-private marketing firm using private money.

His office says Perry will spend one night in Chicago from April 23-24 meeting with business leaders in the biotechnology and financial industries. He will also speak at the 2013 BIO International Convention.

Perry says he wants to “spur competition between states and recruit jobs and employees to Texas.” He frequently travels to blue states with big Republican donors, including California, to recruit businesses to Texas.

Perry has also said he is considering running for president again in 2016.
