Texas Republican Governor Rick Perry said he would have emphasized the "upward trajectory" of business growth in the Lone Star State in a debate over business policies with New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Perry won't have that opportunity because Cuomo on Thursday declined his invitation to debate while the Texas Republican was in New York to recruit business. Perry told Fox News' "Happening Now" he would have highlighted the policies that have been bringing business to Texas over the past 10 years.

"Wealth is leaving states like California and New York. They're migrating to other states," Perry said Thursday.

"I think that is very hard to argue that they are not coming (to New York) because of any other reason than they are in search of freedom. Freedom from overtaxation, overregulation, overlitigation, skilled workforce," he said.

Story continues below video.



Perry explained states needed to be free from Washington's "one-size-fits-all mentality." Boasting an almost 30 percent increase in jobs in his state over the last decade, he credited tax and regulatory policies, the legal system, and "accountable public schools."

"People in Texas know that this state's on an upward trajectory," he said. "California and New York, I would suggest to you, their trajectory is in a downward way."
