Texas governor visiting Maryland to pitch businesses on relocating [Links]

Rick Perry's message: "You are the victim of Gov. Martin O'Malley's terrible, no-good tax policies."

Rick Perry is coming to Maryland to tell you why your business should be in Texas [Baltimore Business Journal]: “Perry on Wednesday plans to hold private meetings with companies and possibly host a reception, his office announced Thursday. His message: You are the victim of Gov. Martin O’Malley’s terrible, no-good tax policies.”
Donald Fry: Futile Western Maryland effort reflects perceptions of imbalance in Annapolis [Center Maryland]: “As part of its recommendations for strengthening our state’s competitiveness, the GBC suggests that alternative redistricting options be considered for Maryland that would foster constructive competition and produce better political balance to promote more creative ideas that would lead to better policy solutions.”
O’Malley campaigns to the cops and judges [Baltimore City Paper]: “O’Malley has always insisted that the statistics produced by the Baltimore Police Department during his time as mayor (and beyond) were generally accurate … This despite evidence that the CompStat model O’Malley (and his brother, Peter) copied in New York led to many instances of stat-juking.”
