Austin, Texas—Kinky Friedman concluded his 32-stop, statewide tour in Big Spring, Texas yesterday. Friedman met with local farmers, ranchers, and community leaders at 219 Gallery and shared his vision for the future of Texas.
“Places like Big Spring, Lubbock, El Paso, and Laredo aren’t on the forefront of the typical politician’s mind, and the truth is, these places are the backbone of Texas. I’m not a typical politician, and quite frankly I don’t want to be,” Friedman said.
“Typical politicians forget on whose backs this state was built. They forget to think outside the box. They forget to come up with new ideas. They forget to be leaders. That isn’t me, and I can guarantee that it never will be.”
“It’s time to put silly partisanship aside for the greater good of our state. We’ve all spent too long letting do-nothing politicians lead us to the middle of nowhere. Farmers right here in Big Spring and all across Texas would benefit greatly from ending the prohibition on growing industrial hemp,” Friedman concluded.
Friedman is running on a serious and common sense platform that will help move Texas forward and secure the future of Texas which can be found here: texasforkinky.com.
