AUSTIN (AP) - The state's bill for providing security for Texas Gov. Rick Perry's presidential bid is nearly $800,000 and growing.
A Texas Department of Public Safety report released Thursday showed the cost of travel expenses for the security detail for Perry and his wife, Anita, was $798,031 from September through part
The San Antonio Express News reports that most of that bill was for out-of-state trips and the security tab for travel outside Texas was more than $1.1 million from Perry's November 2010 re-election to this November.
Remaining security detail costs to the end of Perry's presidential campaign last week will be in future DPS reports.
