BRIAN SCHWEITZER was born and raised on his parents cattle ranch in Judith Basin, on the Great Plains of Montana. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in international agronomy from Colorado State University, and a master of science in soil science from Montana State University. Schweitzer brings a global perspective to his job as Governor. As a young agronomist, Schweitzer went overseas and worked for a decade to bring American agricultural methods to the developing world. In Africa, Asia, Europe and South America, and during seven years in Saudi Arabia, he oversaw large-scale irrigation projects and the construction of several of the worlds largest dairies. Schweitzer returned to Montana in 1986 to raise a family and begin ranching, and became active in farm and rural policy. In 1993 he was appointed by the Secretary of Agriculture to serve on the USDA Farm Service Agency committee Montana, and later served on the National Drought Task Force and the Montana Rural Development partnership Board. In 1999, he decided to run for the U.S. Senate as an unknown candidate, against a strong incumbent whom he narrowly missed defeating. Schweitzer was elected governor in 2004 and re-elected for a second term in 2008. He has received high marks for delivering on his priorities: incentives for alternative energy production; an historic increase in public education spending along with a balanced budget, no new taxes and stronger protection of public lands for hunting, fishing and camping. Schweitzer has also become a leading voice on national resource issues, ranging from bison management in Yellowstone National Park, the importation of infected cattle from Canada, and American dependence on foreign oil. He has been a vocal proponent of increased domestic production of clean energy to replace foreign oil. In this regard, he is perhaps the only governor whose vehicles are powered by both biodiesel and ultra-clean diesel from coal. He and his wife Nancy have raised three children and a now-famous border collie, Jag.

From 1985 to 1991, he served in the Texas House of Representatives. Perry was elected commissioner of agriculture in 1990, and served two terms. As lieutenant governor, Perry worked with legislators to pass a balanced budget that included record tax cuts, teacher pay raises, and a historic school funding increase. Perry was sworn in as the 47th governor of Texas on December 21, 2000, and was elected to a four-year term in November 2002. Perry has focused on initiatives to improve education and the job climate, keep taxes low, and ensure disciplined state spending. In 2003, he joined legislators of both parties in passing a balanced budget without a tax hike despite a $10 billion shortfall. This budget increased education and healthcare spending despite tough economic times, and invested in jobs with the new $295 million Texas Enterprise Fund. Perry also signed the nation's most sweeping lawsuit reforms to address skyrocketing malpractice insurance rates. Since the law's signing, hospitals and doctors have experienced insurance savings, and obstetricians and specialists are returning to practice in previously high-risk areas.

He signed legislation allowing small businesses to pool together to offer affordable health insurance policies, and also reduced the number of mandates for private sector policies. Perry's transportation plan, the Trans Texas Corridor, provides thousands of miles of new roads, new rail lines, and room for petroleum and electric lines, water lines and broadband technology. This proposal, along with new renewable energy requirements and emissions reduction legislation, will help clean the air in urban areas. Perry's vision for school finance reform focuses on results-based incentives; cutting, capping and controlling property taxes; providing greater equity; and protecting the job climate.
