Kinky Friedman announces switch to Ag Commissioner



Following meetings with Mayor Bill White and Businessman Farouk Shami, Kinky Friedman announced that he is abandoning his campaign for Texas Governor and entering the race to become the Democratic nominee for Texas Commissioner of Agriculture.

"This has never been about me; this has always been about what is best for the people of Texas and the Democratic Party," Friedman stated. "After my visit with Bill my mind was made up. There is a clear alternative for the people of Texas, and today I'm changing courses with a happy heart. I've determined that the best way that I can help the ticket and serve Texas families is by switching to the Ag Commissioner's race. Former Texas Agriculture Commissioner, Jim Hightower explained how much the office does and how much potential there is to do more."

Friedman captured 12% of the vote for Texas governor in 2006 as an independent.
