Ciara O’Rourke in the Austin American-Statesman:
True to his word, GOP Gov. Rick Perry did not attend Tuesday night’s gubernatorial debate in Austin. He’d earlier said he wouldn’t gab toe-to-toe with Democratic nominee Bill White until White released more tax returns from his stints in public posts.
Unsilenced, White, Libertarian candidate Kathie Glass and Green Party candidate Deb Shafto did their best to craft a lively hour, making some statements along the way that we’ve previously checked.
Video of the debate is also posted with the article.
