ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry is planning a trip to Maryland to tout his state for having lower taxes.

Perry’s office announced Thursday he is scheduled to travel to Maryland next week. The Republican has launched radio ads and television ads in Maryland.

Perry’s office says the nearly $500,000 in TV and radio buys, as well as the governor’s trip, are paid for by a public-private partnership focusing on marketing Texas as a business destination.

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, a Democrat, dismissed the ads on Wednesday as a “tired old PR gimmick.” O’Malley’s office also released a statement highlighting a top ranking for Maryland schools in an education publication for five years and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce naming Maryland the best state in the nation for innovation and entrepreneurship.
