The Race Begins Today In Texas
Today is the first day for independent candidates in Texas to collect signatures for nomination for the general election. Independent candidates for governor are required to collect about 45,000 signatures in the period after the primary from eligible voters who did not vote in the primary.
Raconteur/singer/author Kinky Friedman will start his campaign in earnest today as will Carole Keeton Strayhorn. Strayhorn, the mother of Bush spokesman Scott McLellan, will run as an independent, having turned her back on the Republican shenanigans of the current administration.
The Happy Circumstance supports Friedman who is running on a platform of, "How hard can it be?"
