In an interview with Hugh Hewitt, Matthew McConaughey wouldn’t rule out running for one of Texas’ highest offices – state governor.
Though he said potentially running wouldn’t be up to him, “it would be up to the people … “
“Politics seems to be a broken business to me right now,” he said in the interview. “And when politics redefines its purpose, I could be a hell of a lot more interested.”
McConaughey remarked how America’s money and fame gives credit and respect, and how it’s no surprise Trump was originally elected, because “Trump has those.”
“You know, I still question how much you can really get done in politics,” he said, “and I don’t know if politics is my avenue to get what maybe I am best equipped to get done.”
He said he wants to promote personal values, “to rebind our social contracts with each other as Americans, as people again.”
