Rasmussen put out another poll showing the race without much movement (link). Excerpt follows...
Incumbent Republican Rick Perry holds an eight-point lead on Democratic challenger Bill White in the Texas governor’s race with less than two weeks to go until Election Day
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Lone Star State finds Perry with 51% support, while White, a former mayor of Houston, attracts 43% of the vote. Two percent (2%) like some other candidate in the contest, and five percent (5%) remain undecided.
