That's right. Farouk Shami, hair care mogul and owner of Chi Farouk Systems, is running for governor of Texas next election. The Palestinian-born Shami will vie for the Democratic nomination. His qualifications? Shami has created thousands of jobs for Texans by opening factories in Houston, TX. He says he wants to "restore the American dream for all Texans by becoming the jobs governor." Whatever that means. Good luck, Farouk! We hope you win the nomination but wonder if Texas will ever elect a Democratic candidate as it is a predominantly Republican state.
