Bill White says he doesn't think governor should pick Tier One University

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Democratic candidate for Texas Governor says he doesn't know if Texas Tech is his pick for Tier One status.

"I won't be biased in favor to any part of the state, let me be clear about that. There should be objective criteria, it should be publicly debated, and should not be a matter of preference of the Governor or anyone else," says White. 

Bill White was on the South Plains Thursday making stops in Lubbock and Plainview. He says state government needs to understand and respect the needs of local government.

White will face Governor Rick Perry in the November election.
