Holy election, Batman! Val Kilmer’s gonna run for governor of New Mexico!
There was a Kilmer sighting in the Dirksen Senate Building today, and in interviews he’s made it clear he’s interested in running in 2010 to succeed Bill Richardson as governor of New Mexico. Here’s an interview with Kilmer:
I’m not sold on the idea of movie stars as politicians. Sure, Ronald Reagan wasn’t completely terrible, but I don’t believe Arnold Schwarzenegger has done a good job as governor of California, and I just can’t see Kilmer being a much better, though I could be wrong.
