State Sen. Kirk Watson, an Austin Democrat who kicked the tires on the governor's race earlier this year, says he'll back Bill White, if White runs.

"Texas needs a candidate for Governor that will honor previous generations and build for our future. I believe Mayor Bill White knows Texans need actions — not mere words, and certainly not the typical smoke screens. I encourage him to enter the Governor’s race, and I will do all I can to support him in his effort to give Texas the new leadership and the new direction it needs."
