AUSTIN -- With a fanfare reminiscent of his presidential campaign, Governor Rick Perry took the stage at the Texas GOP convention in Fort Worth to rally supporters.
Addressing a Republican home crowd in the nation's most populous red state, the governor opened things up with a jab at one of the state's few islands of blue.
"I bring you greetings from the Capital City, where the Democrat-controlled city motto is 'Keep Austin Weird,'" Perry said. "This week in Fort Worth, Texas, we have a different motto. It's 'Keep Texas Republican!'"
