Texas Gov. Rick Perry is targeting New York in a campaign-style advertisement that claims the state's high taxes and strict regulations make it unfriendly to business.

The ad coincides with the one-time presidential candidate's trip across the Northeast aimed at luring new businesses to Texas. Perry is spending Wednesday in New York.

The ad begins with an attack on New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's ban on large sodas. It refers to Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and then switches to a profile of Texas.

Story continues below video.



Perry, a former Republican presidential candidate, has been engaged in a battle of words with Cuomo in recent weeks, and Perry scoffs at Cuomo's claims of a "new New York," saying it looks to him like the same old high-tax state.

In the ad, Perry says his state is "No. 1 for business because we have no state income tax and has added more jobs than any state in the nation over the last five years.”

Perry points out in the ad that Chief Executive Magazine just ranked Texas the nation's top place to do business for the ninth straight year, and tells New Yorkers, "If you’re tired of the same old recipe — of over-taxation, over-regulation, and frivolous litigation — get out before you go broke."

In recent months, the Texas governor has also courted gun manufacturers in Connecticut, who now face tougher state gun-control laws passed in the aftermath of Newtown elementary school shootings. Colt Competition, which makes AR-style rifles, already has moved from Connecticut to Breckenridge, Texas.

Perry's travels to lure business to Texas also have taken him to Illinois and California.

Perry's trip to New England is paid for by TexasOne, a private-sector group that also launched a $1 million advertising campaign in Connecticut and New York last week.
