AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Gov. Rick Perry has greeted President Barack Obama at the Austin airport with a handshake.

Perry was waiting at the bottom of the stairs from Air Force One when it landed on Thursday for a presidential visit to Texas.

Obama is scheduled to stop at a high school, a high-tech incubator and a major semi-conductor firm to tout technology jobs and education.

Perry said he told the president that he could learn from his Republican policies in Texas that has made the state a leader in employment growth. Perry is a staunch critic of the president and made a bid for the Republican nomination for the presidency in 2012.

Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell also greeted Obama, who was accompanied by Austin Congressman Lloyd Doggett.
