Ted Gaines Headed to Texas to Try to Keep Tesla in California

State Senator Ted Gaines is taking a stand on Texas Governor Rick Perry's recent bid to lure jobs out of the golden state.

He's promoting California as the premier destination for business relocation, business expansion and economic development.

"We are the state of innovation and entrepreneurs," Gaines said.

On Monday he's headed to Texas to talk about how California will compete for jobs, specifically looking at the Tesla "gigafactory."

If California keeps the massive factory that means 6,500 jobs. 

The factory could also result in $5 billion capital investment.
