White on the Looming Debate Deadline
Wednesday is the Gov. Rick Perry-issued deadline in a long-running standoff over Bill White's tax returns. Perry has said he won't debate White unless the Democrat releases tax returns from the mid-1990s by Sept. 15. White explains in a news conference Tuesday why he won't release the returns. If the standoff continues, this will be first time in 20 years that candidates for Texas governor haven't met in a televised debate.
