Editorial note: This is the seventh in our series of electronic interviews with candidates in contested primaries at both the Statewide level and throughout Harris County. We have sent eight open-ended questions to each of the candidates. The following are verbatim copies of the questions sent out and the answers received.
SECEDE Kilgore, candidate in the Republican Primary for Governor
Texpatriate: What is your name?
SK: SECEDE Kilgore
T: What office are you running for?
T: What is your profession/occupation?
SK: Freedom Fighter
T: In just a few words, what does the office you are running for do and what are its responsibilities?
SK: Normally the governor sits idly by while Texans are forced to follow DC mandates and pay taxes to the US empire. However, I will be leading Texas toward independence.
T: If you are running against an incumbent (primary or general), do you think the incumbent has failed? If so, why specifically?
T: What would be your three biggest priorities if elected?
SK: SECEDE! SECEDE! SECEDE!
T: What distinguishes you from your opponent(s)? Why should people specifically vote for you?
SK: My opponents will bow to the demands of the US empire. I will not allow the US Empire to interfere with or tax Texans.
T: What is the most important thing you have learned thus far in the campaign?
SK: Stay the course. Don’t get discourage by folks that want DC to continue ruling over Texas.
