Texas Gov. Perry wants White to apologize for 'master-servant' remark

Gov. Rick Perry demanded Thursday that Democratic challenger Bill White apologize for what he said were racially insensitive remarks, but White stood behind his comments and accused the Republican incumbent of playing racial politics. Perry continued a Republican assault on White for his statements to a group of African-American business leaders in Dallas that "We need a governor who's a servant, as opposed to Rick Perry, who wants to be treated as master."
