This is pretty offensive:
Perry has already proved his bona fides as a world-class fundraiser. Members of his finance team says “it is going like wildfire” and their California schedule backs up the claim.
Without context, that statement would be fine.
But Texas is in the middle of an epic drought that is contributing to devastating wildfires:
- The Bastrop fire has consumed over 1400 residences, the worst loss in the history of Texas wildfires.
- Tuesday marked the 294th consecutive day of Texas wildfires, according to Inciweb, a fire-tracking website maintained by state and federal agencies.
- Over 3.5 million acres of Texas land have burned in wildfires this calendar year so far.
- Texas contains almost 50% of the national acreage consumed by wildfires this year.
