MIDLAND/ODESSA - An all day trip to West Texas for the man who wants to be the next Governor of the Lone Star State.
Billionaire Democrat Farouk Shami, whose campaign commercials have been running for a few weeks, made his intentions official on Tuesday.
Shami has been in Midland and Odessa for most of the day meeting and greeting supporters, and trying to drum up support for his run at the Democratic nomination.
The Houston business man is squaring off against former Houston Mayor Bill White, who also has his eye on the Governor's mansion.
Shami will be in Odessa on Wednesday night for a meet and greet before moving on down the campaign trail.
