AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - To hear Republican Gov. Rick Perry tell it, the most important part of his record as the leader of Texas can be summed up in a four-letter word: Jobs.
Perry says thousands of new private-sector jobs have been created on his watch, and it puts Texas in better shape than many states.
Polls show Perry leading Democrat Bill White in his bid to win a third full term, and a close look shows that Perry's policies may have played a role in job growth. But other factors, such as an expanding population, have also contributed.
Perry also has presided for 10 years over a state with occasional budget problems and ongoing social ills. And some of his pet projects, like an elaborate toll road network, failed to come to fruition.
