In his first domestic policy speech as a presidential candidate, Rick Perry is outlining his record as Texas governor and accusing rival Mitt Romney of governing Massachusetts the same way President Barack Obama governs the country.

In an address set for Friday, Perry will outline his record on health care and the environment. He offers few policy proposals, instead focusing on criticizing Obama, hitting Romney's health care law and opening a more aggressive line of attack on Romney's record on climate change.

In prepared remarks obtained by The Associated Press, Perry contrasts Romney's plan with the medical malpractice reform he signed as governor of Texas. And he argues that both Romney and Obama have governed more liberally than he has.
