Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry Joining the Republican Presidential Race

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry compared homosexuality to alcoholism, rejected Medicaid expansion for more than 1 million of the poorest Texans, and denies climate change science. He fits right in to the Republican presidential primary pack.

Last year I sent an open letter to Gov. Perry when he said he was weighing a move to the Golden State. Gov. Perry’s retirement in California will have to wait until voters see through his cruel healthcare policies and the sham of Texas’ economic miracle.
