Matthew McConaughey Ponders Run For Texas Governor


Matthew McConaughey says he may consider running for governor of Texas sometime in the future. The 51-year-old Texas-born actor floated the idea during a radio interview about his new book "Greenlights." The Oscar winner said he thinks politics is a "broken business" right now, but he could be "a lot more interested" in running for office if politics "redefines its purpose." The next race for governor in Texas is in 2022.
