Rumors of McConaughey making a run for Governor have been swirling for years. But has the time finally now come to Make Texas Alright, Alright, Alright Again? I sure as hell believe so and here’s why.
First of all, he’d win. No doubt about it. I know it, you know it and McConaughey knows it. It doesn’t matter Texas is a historically republican state. Because when it comes to McConaughey, he represents all Texans. Politics, gender and race all become irrelevant when you throw McConaughey in the mix. He is Texas and if you polled the citizens of this great State, you’d get well over 50% who‘d vote for him to be their voice and their representative. Facts.
And while McConaughey has always been a philanthropist and never shied away from using his platform to promote awareness to any cause important to him, there’s no question he’s really ramped it up over the past few months:
Let me clear though, I don’t think McConaughey is doing all of this solely to test the political waters, however, it‘s also hard to not believe there may be something more to it. Because as everyone knows, McConaughey is a very busy man.
He’s a father and husband:
An Oscar winning actor:
Professional sports owner:
Minister of Culture:
So the fact he’s choosing to spend this much time and energy on things other than what he is paid to do, definitely has to make you think — is McConaughey preparing for a 2022 run? My sources believe so. And let me ask you this — have you heard McConaughey say he’s not going to run in 2022? Don’t think so.
Bottom line is this — it would be a lot cooler if he did.
PS: In the event McConaughey chooses to not run, I’m happy to report Josh Abbott has also thrown his hat into the ring to be the next Governor of Texas:
That is definitely a campaign I can get behind.
