"We are thrilled that Governor Perry has accepted our invitation to keynote our annual gala in October. Governor Perry has been a model example of both fiscal and social conservative leadership for the rest of the nation. Not to mention, he has also overseen the most robust economy of any state over the last decade. We are honored to welcome this proud Texan to the Live Free of Die state for what will no doubt be a great evening."
