AUSTIN, Texas – Following Gov. Rick Perry’s announcement that he will not be seeking re-election, the president of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility – Michael Quinn Sullivan – offered the following statement:

“For more than a decade, Gov. Perry brought a strong, conservative vision to Texas’ legislative affairs by consistently championing limited government, fiscal responsibility and sensible regulatory reform. As he closes out this chapter in his life of public service, the governor can do so knowing that under his watch the Lone Star State has outshined others in job creation and economic prosperity. On behalf of everyone at TFR, I wish he and Anita the very best as they consider new opportunities to serve our state and nation.”
