BREAKING NEWS: Former TX Governor Mark Wells White, Jr., (D) passed away yesterday morning from a heart attack at the age of 77 in Houston.

White was the last staunch Conservative Dem to win the TX Governor's Mansion in 1982, when he defeated then Governor Bill Clements (R) in what was considered a major political upset in which Clements spent a record $13 million.

Clements got revenge against White 4 years later in 1986.

White served as TX's 43rd Governor from January 18th, 1983 to January 20th, 1987. He was previously elected TX's 46th State Attorney General in 1978 defeating Jim Baker (R) & served from January 16th, 1979 to January 18th, 1983 & also served as TX Secretary of State under then TX Governor Dolph Briscoe (D) from (1973 to 1977). Plus, he also served in the 136th Infantry Division of the TX National Guard.
