Kinky Friedman Holds Rally In Tyler

Independent Gubernatorial candidate Kinky Friedman brought his campaign to Tyler this afternoon.  He said he wanted to make a push for early voting, which ends tomorrow.

Friedman humored the crowd, while talking about the issues he thinks need to be addressed. He talked about the importance of securing the border and cracking down on businesses that employ illegal immigrants.

He also said the education system in our state needs to be restructured. "Instead of 254 monkeys running education, we need one gorilla who loves education and wants to see the kids in Texas are educated," said Friedman.   "This system is really broken. No child left behind has really failed and the only way to solve education is to leave one governor behind."  

Friedman says he has rallies set in Ft. Worth, Houston, San Antonio and Austin.
