Governor Rick Perry is in Davos, Switzerland for the annual World Economic Forum. The governor is touting Texas economic growth and keeping his own profile high as he considers another run for president.
Appearing on CNBC Wednesday, Governor Perry was asked about a photo of him and Khalid Al-Falih, the CEO of the Saudi state-owned oil company, Aramco, and how hydraulic fracturing is making a Texas a bigger world player in energy production.
“That picture of me and Khalid is a little bit of Aggie gatherdom, if you will," Perry said. "He’s a Class of 1982 from Texas A&M and obviously we did talk about the hydraulic fracturing, and the Saudis are actually looking at some of those techniques themselves.”
