Mathew McConaughey Considering Run for Texas Governor


Finally, a Texas gubernatorial candidate who got arrested for smoking weed naked while playing the bongos.

Matthew McConaughey is considering a run for Texas governor.

We highly doubt he does it, but here's what happened, according to Hannah Jones:

Matthew McConaughey said on Tuesday that he would consider trying his hand at a career in politics by running for Governor of Texas.
The Texas native sat down with Hugh Hewitt on "The Hugh Hewitt Show" for an interview about "Greenlights," his best-selling book.
McConaughey told Hewitt, "I would say this: Look, politics seems to be a broken business to me right now. And when politics redefines its purpose, I could be a hell of a lot more interested."
McConaughey talked about his goals and ideas concerning American politics, saying, "I want to get behind personal values to rebind our social contracts with each other as Americans, as people again."
The actor also discussed the recent presidential election and former Vice President Joe Biden's win over President Donald Trump.
"Coming out of the election right now, we’ve got to stabilize," McConaughey said. "This country’s got to stabilize first before we start to say, 'OK, here’s how we’re marching out of this together forward.'"
