Rick Perry announces a special legislative session in Austin, Texas, during which he called on lawmakers to pass a school finance reform plan after vetoing the $35.3 billion Texas education budget. Republican presidential contenders courting an intensely partisan GOP primary electorate are promoting their experience in working with home-state Democrats to tackle big problems, particularly Perry and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, in an effort to broaden their appeal to independents, whose support will be critical in the general election next fall against President Barack Obama. (AP Photo/Thomas Terry, File)
