Strayhorn Collects Signatures For Gubernatorial Campaign In Lubbock

Texas Gubernatorial candidate, Carole Keeton Strayhorn was in Lubbock Monday.

Her first stop was Texas Tech University. She told students her top priority is education and, if elected, students would see some changes. She believes their should be a freeze placed on tuition so that students pay the same amount all four years of college. It's part of her plan for Texas to have the most educated workforce in the country.

"I'd rather pay $2,500 a year and educate that Texan rather than $16,000 a year to incarcerate them, and there is a direct connection between the two," Strayhorn said.

Strayhorn is running as an Independent, and must collect 45,540 signatures to get her name on the November ballot.
