Friedman to Run for Governor
Writer and singer Kinky Friedman presented 169,574 names supporting his bid to be governor to Texas election officials. Regulations require potential independent candidates to collect 45,540 valid signatures in order to make it on the ballot. “”All I can say is, thank God for bars and dance halls,” said Friedman.
If California can have an actor as governor, and Minnesota can have a wrestler, why can’t Texas have a writer?
