LOS ANGELES (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown says the radio ads launched by Texas Gov. Rick Perry to persuade California companies to “come check out Texas” are just “a few tricks from a politician” and will not have any substantive effect.

Brown responded Monday to the 30-second advertisement touting Texas’ low taxes, industry-friendly regulations and strict limits on lawsuits.

The Sacramento Bee reported that Brown told reporters outside an event in Los Angeles the commercials are unlikely to make a difference because people invest in places where “big things have occurred.”

The governor says everyone “with half a brain” is coming to California, home of Apple, Google and Hollywood studios. He says that includes the British, French, Russians and Chinese.

“So Texas,” Brown says, “come on over.”
