Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bill White will announce today that he’s picked up the endorsement of Charles England, the mayor of Grand Prairie.
England is a self-described Republican. His son Kirk was elected to the Texas House in 2006 as a Republican, but he switched to the Democratic Party in 2007. When the switch was announced, Charles England supported his son and criticized the state’s GOP leadership.
In a press release issued this morning, England said, “We need Bill White as our next governor because he will run the state with taxpayers and their wallets in mind.He’s proved that he knows how to squeeze the value out of a dollar with fiscally disciplined budgets.”
