First it was Texas Gov. Rick Perry who came to California with his cowboy swagger and boasts about lassoing away businesses. Then the South Dakota governor swept through to recruit dairy farmers. Soon after, the Iowa governor made an appearance.
Now they're coming in pairs.
Joining forces, Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell are heading to California on Thursday to try their luck at wooing California businesses. On a two-day tour with stops in Costa Mesa, Palo Alto and San Francisco, the old friends plan to tout the wonders of doing business in their states.
But their campaign will be markedly less pugnacious than that of their Lone Star State counterpart, who ran radio ads in February declaring that "building a business in California is next to impossible." Herbert and McDonnell insist their trip is less raiding party and more friendship tour.
GUEST ALERT: Gov. Herbert is scheduled to join Rod at 6:05 from CA to discuss his trade mission.
