Matthew McConaughey Announces Gubernatorial Run Decision

One of the most important factors for the 2022 Texas gubernatorial election has just been decided.

Actor Matthew McConaughey has finally announced whether he will run.

To Governor Greg Abbott’s delight, McConaughey had decided now is not the right time to start a political career.

Not Yet

I honestly think this entire thing was more or less a joke that got out of control.

Over the last year or so, McConaughey started to involve himself in more political commentary.

He has always been adored in the state, especially since taking an ambassador position for the University of Texas.

There is no challenging this man’s love for the state, but was he really ready to take on the role of governor?

That notion gained a lot of steam until McConaughey eventually poured gasoline on it by saying he was thinking about it.

Next thing you know, he is the favorite in a head’s up battle against every other candidate.

It reminded me of a movie called “The Candidate” with Robert Redford, where he runs as a stunt then finally finds himself winning the election.

The infamous ending line of the movie is “What now?”

Rather than face that moment, McConaughey has decided to back way…

This will now put Abbott as the clear favorite in the race, although he will be facing a primary challenge from at least two candidates.

Both Allen West and Chad Prather plan on primarying Abbott, but I doubt either will get the grip needed to unseat him.

The only way the Democrat favorite, Beto O’Rourke, has a shot of winning is if one or both of them decide to run independently, pulling conservative votes away from Abbott.

One would hope that all candidates from the primary support the winner rather than risking turning Texas over to a socialist that is for open borders just to make a point.
