Live Like You Were Runnin'

National Journal is reporting this morning:

Meanwhile, country music singer "Tim McGraw says he and his wife, Faith Hill, might be another celebrity couple hitting the political campaign trail," reports. "He announced his plans to run for governor of Tennessee someday. 'I just think as governor of the state, there would be a lot more opportunities to make some decisions and change some things.'"
McGraw attended Northeast Louisiana University on a baseball scholarship where he studied sports medicine (his father is former Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher Tug McGraw.) And yes, he is a Republican.

Interestingly enough, in an article on McGraw in Esquire it makes the reader infer McGraw is a democrat...especially as it quotes former President Clinton as saying he thinks McGraw would be a great candidate.

Billy Ray Cyrus might be the only country music "star" who is an open Democrat.

Riley - Tim McGraw is a democrat (and he donates to them, you can look it up in FEC records). Here's a small article mentioning his Democrat party affiliation:
