FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Hair care businessman Farouk Shami has guaranteed he'd create 100,000 jobs available to everyone if he's
elected governor.

The Democrat, during last night's debate in Fort Worth, also
offered free electricity and said he would enact a moratorium on
the death penalty.

Former Houston Mayor Bill White focused on GOP incumbent Gov.
Rick Perry.

Both Democrats agreed on the importance of jobs. White says the way to create jobs is to retrain unemployed people and ensure they have a job at the end of the training.

The question of a death penalty moratorium was a major item of
disagreement, with Shami declaring "a lot of innocent people"
have been put to death in Texas. White says a blanket suspension
would disrespect juries, victims and criminal justice where there
is no question about the evidence.

The primary is March 2.
