AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Could Texas Gov. Rick Perry be California dreamin'?

The Republican has made convincing top employers to move to Texas a centerpiece of his administration. He's even led job-poaching missions in Democratically controlled states.

California has been a prime target, with Perry bashing what he calls the Golden State's high-tax, over-regulated ways.

But a New York Times Magazine story released Tuesday says Perry told the reporter "he loves California" and "might even move" there in January, when his term ends.

Perry isn't seeking re-election in November but hasn't ruled out a second presidential run. In April, he scored a political victory when Toyota announced it was moving its U.S. headquarters from California to Texas.

His office didn't immediately return messages asking if Perry himself could make the opposite move.
