By Shelley Kofler, KERA News
Dallas, TX – Former Houston Mayor Bill White claims Governor Rick Perry is trying to hide the state's financial problems until after election day. KERA is sitting down with both candidates running for governor, asking them how they'll handle a looming budget deficit.
On Friday you heard from Perry who said the upcoming budget gap might be around $11 billion.
White, a democrat, told KERA's Shelley Kofler the deficit is probably double that, and White says there will be an additional shortfall this year.
