Gov. Rick Perry is kicking off the Texas Republican Convention on an opening day that also features an address by U.S. Rep. Ron Paul.

Perry is set to address the convention Thursday morning. Paul, Texas' other unsuccessful presidential candidate, will lead a breakout session in the afternoon titled "Uniting Republicans and Balancing the Federal Budget."

Also appearing at events on the sidelines of the gathering at the Fort Worth Convention Center are Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and former state Solicitor General Ted Cruz.

Dewhurst and Cruz will meet in a runoff election July 31 for the GOP nomination to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.

The convention runs until Sunday and also includes speeches by former presidential candidate Rick Santorum and Wisconsin U.S. Rep Paul Ryan.
