White tries to rally devoted Democrats

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (AP) - Democrat Bill White appears pumped up and is pushing for votes in traditionally Democratic territory with just four days left before the election.

A cadre of popular Democratic local elected officials joined White for a boisterous rally at a Mexican food restaurant in San Antonio on Friday. White told the crowd not to worry about polls showing him trailing Republican Gov. Rick Perry by as much as double digits.

He said the results of the election for governor haven't been written yet. He said it appears as many Democrats as Republicans are turning out in early voting.

After months of visiting all parts of Texas, including GOP strongholds, White has been spending a lot of time this week paying attention to hard-core Democrats to drive up their turnout.
