Another Governor Comes a'Poaching

Posted: Updated:

Texas Governor Rick Perry just left California after a business recruiting trip and now Iowa Governor Terry Branstad is on his way.

Investigative producer Heidi Cuda reports Branstad called California a "happy hunting ground," and plans to meet with California business leaders tomorrow and Wednesday to lure them to his state.

Riley Ray-Robbins, a spokesman for Governor Brown, says it's snowing this week in Iowa and he doesn't blame Branstad for trying to enjoy some California sunshine.

Robbins also points out that California's 100-billion-dollar-a-year tourism industry is number one in the country, and the Golden State created more private sector jobs than any other state in the past 12 months.

Branstad says, he's trying to create 200 thousand jobs for Iowa and that's why he's coming to California.
