Texas Governor Debate Heats Up

Governor Rick Perry's republican reelection campaign is balking at debating Democratic challenger Bill White.

A Perry campaign spokesman says the governor wants white to release income tax returns for the past six years.

White campaign spokeswoman says the demand shows Perry doesn't want to face White in debate, but a Perry campaign spokesman says forcing White to be open to scrutiny is the real issue.

White has released his 2009 tax return and promises to release returns each year he runs for or holds statewide office, just as Perry has.
