Gov. Perry Refuses To Debate

Governor Perry is still refusing to debate with his democratic opponent.

But this time he gave a reason why.

Governor Rick Perry said holding out on a debate is his leverage in forcing the former Houston Mayor Bill White to release income tax returns.

Governor Perry said he has a responsibility to confront White on missing income tax returns dating back to the mid 1990's.

Texas largest newspaper announced last week to hold a gubernatorial debate in October, with or without the Governor.

White has already accepted.
