Ellis County wants to put Kinky over the top

Will Ellis County put Kinky over the top?That’s the question supporters are hoping to answer Saturday during a major petition drive planned for the Kinky Friedman for Governor campaign.Running as an independent candidate for Texas governor, Friedman is required to obtain more than 45,540 signatures of registered voters before his name can appear on the November ballot. To further complicate matters, only registered voters who did not vote in the Republican or Democratic primaries and/or run-off elections (which is roughly 80 percent of Ellis County registered voters) are eligible to sign the petition.“It’s not easy for an independent, that’s for sure,” said Jerry Coleman, one of the volunteers working on Friedman’s campaign in Ellis County.Friedman’s Ellis County supporters will be holding a petition rally from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. Saturday at the entrance of Scarborough Faire in Waxahachie....

...We’d like to have a big turnout,” he added, noting the signature effort is going well statewide. “Of course, we’d like Ellis County to put him over the top.”For more information on the Ellis County Kinky Friedman for Governor campaign, contact Jerry Coleman at (972) 938-0563 or visit the Web site at www.kinkyfriedman.com.
