FORT WORTH -- Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bill White received an unusual gift Tuesday morning while speaking to a standing-room only gathering of Country Club Friends at Colonial Country Club.
On it was a note that it was a gift "for coyotes and other pests," referring to the incident of GOP Gov. Rick Perry shooting a coyote while out on a jog one day.
"You've got a bigger gun," Boothe said. "Good hunting, Bill White."
Afterward, White said he doesn't keep gifts of significant value that are given to him during his political campaigns and "will have to find something appropriate to do with it."
Boothe said he understands if White doesn't keep the gift. "It's OK," he said. "It makes me respect him if that's what he has to do."
