Andrew White Pushes Economic Plan Ahead of Runoff

One Democrat running for governor of Texas is calling for economic and technological advances in the state ahead of the May 22nd Democratic Primary runoff.

Andrew White, one of two Democrats currently in a runoff for the governor's office, announced a plan today that he says would create 1 million jobs in Texas, while also causing new economic and technological advances. Under White's plan, the Houston businessman wants to use technology and civic pride to create jobs. White said in a press conference today that he would like to see "Made in Texas" signs placed on gas pumps, which he believes would create 200,000 new jobs across the state. White also wants Texas to push for autonomous, self-driving vehicles that would run on compressed natural gas and electric batteries.

White is facing former Dallas County sheriff Lupe Valdez in the May 22nd Democratic runoff for governor. The winner of the runoff will face incumbent Governor Greg Abbott, a Republican, in November.
