Perry, White to Face-off in November

Posted: Updated:

HOUSTON (AP) - Democratic gubernatorial nominee Bill White says his GOP opponent, Gov. Rick Perry, is more interested in promoting "partisan rhetoric" and "angry headlines" than in improving the lives of Texans.
    White, the former Houston mayor, told a news conference in Houston on Wednesday that Perry's attacks on Washington during his campaign have been a way to divert attention from his own poor job performance as governor.
    Perry used the rising wave of anti-Washington ire to help him easily beat Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison in the GOP primary. White, who's portraying himself as a calm consensus-builder, easily
defeated six opponents to win the Democratic party's nomination.
