Governor candidate Friedman makes Lubbock visit

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Texas gubernatorial candidate Kinky Friedman made a stop in the Hub City, during his tour of West Texas. Friedman, who is running on the democratic ticket, talked about the state's economy, the education system, and political leadership. 

"These are things we can work on. There's lots to do, what I think we mainly need is somebody who is not afraid to mess with Texas. And I promise you, I'll really mess with Texas and I'll keep messin' with Texas until we get it right," said Friedman.

The election for the Governor's seat will take place in November of next year. Friedman is running against Tom Schieffer and Hank Gilbert for the democratic nomination.
