  The Governor of Texas was greeted by protesters on Monday, Dec 17, 2012 during his visit to North Texas.  The Northeast Tarrant County Democrats organized a rally to advocate restoring funding for public schools.
 Governor Perry was attending a Tea Party fundraiser at the North Richland Hills Community Center.
 His Tea Party guests got to hear various chants including "Stop the Cuts - Educate Our Future!" and protest signs to remind them that the Republican-led Texas legislature has cut over 5 billion dollars from public schools and may cut more this session.  
 Besides the Northeast Democrats, other groups that participated included Save Texas Schools and other education advocates.

The Star Telegram reported the protest:
