Matthew McConaughey Considers Running For Texas Governor
Alright, alright, alright. Texas very own Matthew McConaughey is seriously considering running for the office of Governor here in Texas. McConaughey sat down with Hugh Hewitt on "The Hugh Hewitt Show" for an interview about "Greenlights," his new book.
"I don’t know. I mean, that wouldn’t be up to me. It would be up to the people more than it would me," McConaughey told Hewitt. "I would say this: Look, politics seems to be a broken business to me right now. And when politics redefines its purpose, I could be a hell of a lot more interested."
The actor talked about a rapidly changing political landscape and where he could add to the future of re-building the Texas spirit.
"I want to get behind personal values to rebind our social contracts with each other as Americans, as people again."
McConaughey also commented on the recent Biden-Harris win and what the election means for the future.
"Coming out of the election right now, we’ve got to stabilize," McConaughey said. "This country’s got to stabilize first before we start to say, 'OK, here’s how we’re marching out of this together forward.'"
Current Governor Greg Abbott is up for re-election in 2022. McConaughey said he’ll make his decisions made public soon.
