Bill Clements - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (850 words)
Clements ran for reelection in 1982, but he was defeated by Democratic Attorney General Mark White by more than 200,000 votes because of sagging economic indicators and weak support from minority voters, who customarily choose Democratic candidates.
Clements' second term was marred by his admission, shortly after his election, that the SMU board had been aware and approved of continuing payments to athletes in violation of NCAA rules.
Clements finished his term, opted not to run for a third term as governor, and was succeeded in 1991 by Democratic state Treasurer Dorothy Ann Willis Richards (1933-2006).
