Perry Campaign Strikes Back

In response to the Romney camp’s “Governor Sub-Zero” diss of Rick Perry’s jobs record earlier today, the Perry campaign has blasted out an e-mail headlined, “Rick Perry’s Texas added more private-sector jobs in two months than Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts in four years.”

“Being 47th in job creation and killing 18,000 jobs with RomneyCare is not a record to brag about,” Perry communications director Ray Sullivan said in a statement. He added that during Romney’s tenure as governor, “Rick Perry’s Texas added nearly 20 times as many private sector jobs as Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts despite having only three and a half times as many people.”
