Rick Perry courts New York business owners

New York (CNNMoney) - Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, a Republican candidate for the presidency, dropped into New York City on Monday to court the support of Hispanic business owners.

Perry met with dozens of supporters at Papasito Mexican Grill and Agave Bar in the heavily Hispanic neighborhood of Inwood in the northern part of Manhattan. He came at the request of Fernando Mateo, a stockbroker who owns several taxi companies and a construction company, and whose wife is an investor in Papasito.

    How much does Perry charge millionaires to buy his support?
