Gov. Rick Perry to Bill White: Quit race

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Republican Gov. Rick Perry is accusing Democratic challenger Bill White of "profiteering" from Hurricane Rita and said he should drop out of the race if he can't clear up the allegations.
Perry said White should "immediately resign from the race for governor" if he doesn't better explain an investment made months after the storm. The Associated Press reported Tuesday that White invested $1 million in an energy company that he had enlisted for help after the 2005 storm.
White's campaign said the former Houston mayor had done nothing wrong. White spokeswoman Katy Bacon said Perry had "sunk to new lows" by urging White to get out of the race, calling the attacks "absolutely appalling."
