Three prominent Houstonians have already expressed interest in running for mayor. That includes current Controller Annise Parker, Councilmember Peter Brown and former Kemah Mayor Bill King. If Governor White got in the race, experts say it could be a game changer.
Reached on the phone Wednesday, White says he wasn't thinking about running for mayor until getting calls from friends and supporters.
"I've had a very prominent job, probably the best job in the world, being governor," he told us. "And this, though, is a very important post, and if it's something I think I can bring some talent to it, I'm flattered people would think I could."
Governor White has no relation to current Mayor Bill White, who won't be able to run again because of term limits. Political experts say even if White jumps in, there will most likely be several more additional candidates all wanting to be your next mayor.
