American edition Austin american-statesman quotes the governor of Texas:

Governor Perry is a member of the Republican Party and has led Texas for 14 years. At the same time, Rick Perry is a regional leader who has repeatedly raised the issue of Texas’s withdrawal from the United States, since Washington’s policy, Perry believes, runs counter to the 25 interests of millions of Texas residents. Recently, rallies for the separation of Texas from the United States of America have become frequent in the state.
