STAMFORD - Texas Gov. Rick Perry was in Connecticut today trying to lure jobs to the Lone Star State.

The former presidential candidate is attempting to woo gun manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies and financial services. He insists that he is not pushing a political agenda, but is instead focusing on better business practices.

Perry is not specifying the types of incentives he would offer and does not plan on announcing any moves during the trip.

In a speaking appearance at the Ferguson Library, Perry discussed the principles of good business.
