TX. Gov. Perry still refuses to debate Dem. candidate Bill White

ABILENE, Texas (AP) - Republican Gov. Rick Perry says the voters of Texas aren't missing out because of his refusal to debate Democrat Bill White.

White along with Libertarian Kathie Glass and Green Party candidate Deb Shafto are meeting in Austin on Tuesday night for a debate organized by major newspapers and public television station KLRU.

Perry has said he won't debate White because he hasn't released all his tax returns from his years in public service. White says Perry is scared to answer questions in a debate.

Perry, after a speech in Abilene, said he's reaching more Texans through his regular media interviews than he would in a televised debate.

He says he's not sure that Texans are paying much attention to a debate.
