Shami criticizes White, opens 8th campaign office
Democrat Farouk Shami criticizes Bill White while opening his eighth campaign office in El Paso:
Farouk Shami, a Democratic gubernatorial candidate, criticized primary election rival Bill White on Wednesday -- calling the former Houston mayor a poor businessman who does not understand the pressing economic problems of Texas.
"Mr. Bill White's city of Houston -- which is my city -- is almost on the verge of bankruptcy," Shami said. "It's in a deficit of $103 million just three days ago. Mr. Bill White borrowed $200 million just three and a half weeks ago. Mr. Bill White claims he knows business. What kind of business?"
As I said before, If I were Shami, I'd go on the air. He doesn't have much time to get a message out, and the early things people would have heard from the media aren't good.
If you click the link, Shami has decided to go with Farouk for governor. I frankly wonder about that. Shami ain't exactly Smith, but since it seems like the candidate might have wanted to play down his religion, you might think he might want to play down his non-nativeness as well. My intuition would be that Farouk seems stranger than Shami would on a yard sign, but I might be wrong.
Farouk was the under wear bomber's name
