TX-Gov: Kinky Friedman Inches Closer to Officially Running



Kinky Friedman, who ran for Governor as an independent in 2006, has been exploring another run -- this time as a Democrat -- for months. Friedman has been making speeches and meeting with activists in preparation for a run next year.
Friedman discussed his upcoming fundraiser with Willie Nelson and Three Dog Night and told the Austin American-Statesman's Gardner Selby that he "can't really [fundraise] and not run."
That could be a sign that Friedman, who has led Democrats Tom Schieffer and Mark Thompson in every public poll released thus far, could be close to officially jumping in the race.
