Kinky Friedman Names Native West Texan As Campaign Manager
Friedman Thrilled to Have Proven Winner Joining the Team
(Austin, Texas) —Texas Commissioner of Agriculture candidate, Kinky Friedman, announces Rania Batrice as his Campaign Manager for the duration of the election cycle. Batrice recently served as communications director for the North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party and played an integral role in helping to elect United States Senator Heidi Heitkmap (D-ND).
Friedman stated, "Rania knows how to turn a red state blue because she’s actually done it. She is a native west Texan with a lot of political experience, understanding, and passion for this great state we all know and love. I respect her judgment, and I know she will help us bring home a primary victory in March. I’m thrilled to have her on our team and have no doubt she will work tirelessly to get the word out about our plan to move Texas forward.”
“I am so happy to be back home in Texas and excited to be working with a leader who isn’t afraid to take on an issue that is bigger than himself and will benefit every tax-paying citizen in our state. I respect Kinky and am honored to be named his campaign manager," Batrice said.
Batrice has dedicated her professional life to progressing public policy in the areas of domestic and international economic development, justice reform, agriculture, human rights, and the eradication of poverty, sex trafficking, and forced labor.
Prior to managing Friedman’s campaign, Batrice worked as a communications consultant for various political and non-profit clients.
Batrice is a native of Lubbock, Texas.
