Kinky Friedman For Texas Governor
Kinky Friedman For Texas Governor

Singer-song writer, comedian, activist, novelist, humanist, and Texas celebrity, Kinky Friedman, joined the race in 2006 for the governor of Texas. Campaigning in bars, BBQ joints, country western dance halls and high school gyms, he appealed to a variety of Texans with his down-to-earth, comedic and candid approach. On the campaign trail he daily wore traditional western attire - his signature black cowboy hat and black preacher jacket accompanied with a cigar in hand - which made him the most colorful of the candidates running for election that year. However, Kinky’s larger than life personality was not enough to win over the hearts of the Texas majority. He finished the race with 12.6% of the votes, coming in the last of the four candidates. Despite his loss, Kinky Friedman remains a long-standing figure in the limelight with a giant fan base all over Texas.
