Bill White's first ad... and similarities between Bill White and Kay...

Bill White released his first campaign ad... he is obviously not very concerned about Farouk Shami...

I think it will be pretty pathetic to watch Bill White and Shami debatacle... Shami might do so bad that he will actually earn a few sympathy votes. LOL.

This ad from Bill White sounds a lot like what Kay spent her time saying on the campaign trail over the past year...

Honestly it is pretty weak... even in tone and style... sort of just subdued.

The liberal muse blog actually noticed that Kay and Bill White are very similar in style and substance alike (link). Excerpt follows...
Whose website are these quotes from - KBH or Bill White? Answers are in the comments.

1."Candidate" took aim Thursday at Gov. Rick Perry’s oversight of the Texas Enterprise Fund, saying he has kept the public in the dark about the fund’s activities. "Candidate" called for an immediate independent audit of the job creation program.

2. "Texas is not globally competitive. The state faces a downward spiral in both quality of life and economic competitiveness if it fails to educate more of its growing population (both youth and adults) to higher levels of attainment, knowledge and skills." My plan to improve education is critical for the future of our economy.

3."Education is my number one priority," Candidate said. "We can do so much more. We need to encourage high school students to consider college, and give them the skills they need to succeed in college, but also provide vocational training so that those who choose a different career path can still make enough to support their families.

4."Now, for the first time in our state, we have a situation where the percentage of Texans aged 25 to 35 with a college degree is below that of our older population, aged 35 to 55. That's the wrong direction if we want to compete to win.

5."I believe that it is time to pull back the curtains on the backrooms of the governor’s office and let the sun shine on the state’s higher office once again."

6. In this economy, it's vital that the Governor attract new businesses to the state, allow small businesses to grow, and ensure a skilled workforce through education and job training.

7. "The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) should end plans for the ill-conceived Trans-Texas Corridor, which would have been run for private interests and would not have helped Texans go from where they live to where they work."

8. Texas deregulated prices of electricity in 1999 with support from then Lt. Governor Perry. Since 2007, there has been no limit on consumer prices. Over the last decade, Texas went from having utility bills lower than the national average to bills now higher than the national average. The Public Utility Commission should be given the authority to avoid both blackouts and price spikes by providing incentives for reserve margins, energy efficiency, and cleaner fuels, including natural gas.

9. "On behalf of every Texas taxpayer an effective, transparent and accountable state government should be our first priority. Our elected officials work for the tax payers not the other way around."

To find out the answers, you will have to visit her blog (link). I couldn't tell which was which on most of them...

I think Bill White may have had a good shot in 2006 or 2008, but not 2010... this is just not a year for a Democrat to win.

Hey now, campaign characters. Be nice. I know a lot of you on both sides, so I don't want any overly foul language, personal attacks on anyone other than the candidates themselves, or other party fouls. I will moderate the heck out of you if you start breaking the bounds of civility.
