On Wednesday, August 28th, at a Carl’s Jr. restaurant in Austin, Texas, I was honored to share the stage with Texas Governor Rick Perry and several other proud Texans. It was a privilege to introduce the Governor, a true defender of the both free enterprise and our American values. I’ve known Governor Perry for three or four years now. He originally cold called me to thank me for opening restaurants in Texas. I have only the highest admiration for his continuing efforts on behalf of Texas and in keeping Texas a prosperous and business-friendly state.
