What’s with all these celebrities wanting to be politicians? Tim McGraw is the latest star to jump on the band wagon, with reports saying he’s “seriously considering a run” for Tennessee governor in 2010. But Tim’s publicist Jessie Schmidt denied the reports, saying Tim wants to take his time before entering any race.
He instead wants to wait til his kids are a little older and his music career slows down. And Tim’s not just a singer these days. He’s an actor too! He has a role in the movie Four Christmases. So that’s a lot on his plate! We’re glad he’s deciding to wait on the decision.
Tim tells Esquire magazine, "I think it's something I'd do well. I just think as governor of the state, there would be a lot more opportunities to make some decisions and change some things."
This echoes Tim’s 2004 statement to Time magazine, in which he told them, "I want to run for the Senate from Tennessee. Not now, but when I'm 50."
Well according to those calculations, Tim has 12 more years before he has to worry about anything!
