Kinky Friedman To Announce For Texas Governor

Just when you thought the 2010 race for Governor of  Texas couldn’t get any crazier,  musician and humorist Kinky Friedman has announced that he plans to run for Governor –  again –  but this time  as a DEMOCRAT.

Beginning Tuesday, September 1, 2009, Kinky will be in Houston to kickoff  a statewide tour  formally announcing his candidacy for  the March 2010 Democratic Primary.

His website is already up and running: http://www.kinkyfriedman.com/, and it looks like he has a packed schedule of  political events and personal appearances.

Remember when Kinky ran in 2006 as an independent candidate?

 He finished dead last  in a four-way fight between incumbent Governor Ricky Perry, former Railroad Commissioner Carole Keeton Strayhorn, and Democrat Chris Bell.

Still,  his campaign seemed to inspire a lot of  voters, who  enjoyed watching the self  proclaimed“Jewish Cowboy”  criticize politics as usual, and attack the better funded political insiders. 

Hank Gilbert and Tom Schieffer are the two other candidates who have announced plans to run in the democratic primary.

But, only Kinky will by the guy puffing on a cigar, wearing cowboy boots, asking for your vote.
