BAKERSFIELD - Texas Governor Rick Perry visited Bakersfield Tuesday to campaign for a local assemblymember.
Perry joined Shannon Grove for a breakfast fundraiser at Hodel's.
23ABC spoke to both Perry and Grove, who both say they have a lot in common, especially when it comes to freedom:
"We believe in freedom. And that cuts across a lot of landscape. Freedom from over-taxation, from over-regulation, from over-litigation," said Perry.
"California politicians should take a lesson from a state like Texas with a Governor who supports, not destroys, job creators and small business owners with every decision that is made," Grove said in a press release.
