Matthew McConaughey To Run For Governor Of Texas In 2022?

https://texastakes.com/2020/06/17/matthew-mcconaughey-to-run-for-governor-of-texas-in-2022/

Rumors of McConaughey making a run for Governor have been swirling for years. But has the time finally now come? I sure as hell believe so and here’s why.

First of all, he’d win. No doubt about it. I know it, you know it and McConaughey knows it. It doesn’t matter Texas is a historically republican state. Because when it comes to McConaughey, he represents all Texans. Politics, gender and race all become irrelevant when you throw McConaughey in the mix. He is Texas and if you polled the citizens of this great State, you’d get well over 50% who‘d vote for him to be their voice and their representative. Facts.

And while McConaughey has always been a philanthropist and never shied away from using his platform to promote awareness to any cause important to him, there’s no question he’s really ramped it up over the past few months:

10. Are you sure he's a dem?

I'll be honest, and maybe it is male jealousy thing, but, I've never liked him much. Just something about him bugs me.

17. I always thought that he was a Republican.

I don’t like him much either, and it’s not jealousy in my case since I’m a woman.

20. if there's anyone who can engage and get young people fired up it's MM.

He has alot of great leadership qualities, not to mention he's empathetic & kind, and is also a philanthropist and donates his time to good causes.

16. I imagine there are much better candidates

If not, that doesn't speak well of Texas Democrats. Other than his celeb status what is so great about him as a public servant? I saw him delivering something the other day and getting lots of pub for doing it. Always seemed like a show off to me.

entry level job.

27. Read the article. It's speculation at this point. MM hasn't explicitly said anything. But rumors

tend to have some truth to them in politics. I'd imagine he won't ocme out declaring his candidacy till at least next year.

his agenda.
