Early indications are that he may be considering running as a Democrat.
Thu Feb 19, 2009 at 02:20:54 AM MSTI have been in two of his films, though our paths never crossed (Blind Horizon and Comanche Moon). Personally, the information that he is a Nader supporter makes him MORE attractive to me than the likely front-runner in the Dim race, current Lt.Gov. Diane Denish, an old-line, neo-liberal Dim pol who has been around NM Dim Party politics for dog-years...
It looks like Val Kilmer is running for governor in 2010, at least according to a report by Heath Haussamen.Val Kilmer has hired the Washington public relations firm McMahon, Squier & Associates to handle communications and media for his potential gubernatorial campaign, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed.In case you are wondering, Kilmer has yet to acknowledge any of the issues for New Mexico. Not just since positioning himself for a run for governor, but since living in New Mexico in general.
The move is a major step toward a gubernatorial run for an actor who has made a lot of noise about considering running for New Mexico governor in 2010 but taken no visible, concrete steps toward making it happen -- until now.
Kilmer looks to be running as a governor as a Democrat. I wonder how rank and file Democrats will welcome the revelations that he was a supporter of Ralph Nader.
