AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Gov. Rick Perry has cast his ballot in the Nov. 3 election and said he's particularly interested in passage of propositions on research universities and eminent domain.
Those proposed constitutional amendments - Propositions 4 and 11 respectively - are among 11 on the statewide ballot.
Perry cast an early vote Tuesday at an Austin area grocery store along with fellow Republican Michael Williams, a Texas railroad commissioner.
Answering questions from reporters afterward, Perry said he doesn't see a need for a moratorium on the death penalty. He said he believes Texas' justice system is a fair one in which criminals are punished appropriately.
