Lawyer Lee merritt believes his battle to become Texas Attorney General is not as difficult as people think … because he believes he can work with law enforcement to give his campaign the boost it needs to win .
The famous civil rights lawyer – who represented the families of John botham, Ahmaud Arbery and George floyd among many others – joined “TMZ Live” on Tuesday to discuss his chances in the AG race … and give his opinion on Matthew McConaughey candidate for governor of Texas.
Merritt acknowledges he faces a major challenge as a Democrat running in a traditionally Red state, but insists the police are on his side … especially the good cops who are already working to improve the system.
Looks like he thinks his campaign’s focus on new ideas – involving voter rights, repairing the state’s electricity grid, and ending mass incarceration – can energize enough new voters. to lead him to victory.
Speaking of energy… Merritt says McConaughey may be the gubernatorial candidate who brings a lot to state elections, and he hopes the actor will throw his hat in the ring soon.
The big mystery, of course, is whether the actor is launching a campaign on the heels of his union message to Americans … will he run as a Democrat, Republican or Independent ???
Cleary, lawyer Merritt has a preference … anything that leads to a “blue wave”.
Our sincere thanks to
