The 2010 race for governor

Kinky's back. And this time he's serious.

Kinky Friedman announced Tuesday the formation of “Texans for Kinky,” a ‘specific purpose’ committee that will enable him to explore and raise money for a possible run as the Democratic candidate for governor in 2010, according to a news release.

“I am a humorist, but I know these are not humorous times,” Friedman said in a letter to supporters. “There is a pathetic lack of leadership at the state level. The last governor who was truly on the side of the people was Ann Richards. She was a very funny lady — she was also a great governor.”

Of course there's a San Antonio connection.
San Antonio attorney and Friedman advisor Abel Dominguez will serve as treasurer of “Texans for Kinky.” Dominguez helped orchestrate Victor Morales’ victory in the 1996 Democratic U.S. Senate primary.
Here's a hint, Kinky: If you want people to consider you to be a serious candidate, stop saying you'll appoint Willie Nelson to head up state energy policy.

If he thinks Ann Richards was that great he'll never get my vote.
