According to the Dallas Star-Telegram, Jimmy Buffett will play two shows in Texas to benefit Kinky Friedman’s gubernatorial campaign.

Kinky Friedman, the wisecracking humorist running for governor, said Wednesday he will campaign with help from ex-wrestler and former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura and island-hopping musician Jimmy Buffett.

Ventura recently agreed to join Friedman on a college tour to woo young voters in September, and Buffett will play two Texas concerts to benefit the campaign, said a Friedman spokeswoman.

Friedman said Buffett had called and agreed to help raise money. Buffett did it on the condition that if elected, Friedman give him the Gulf Coast city of Port Aransas, the candidate joked.

Details of Buffett’s Friedman concerts weren’t released.
