Used-Car Salesman Promises Unremarkable Campaign for Governor


Capital region used-car salesman Ken Goewey plans to make his already-quixotic bid for governor in 2010 even more unlikely by barely raising any money for it, telling a small crowd of supporters recently, “This will be the smallest, least amount of money that ever was used to finance a campaign.” Based on his platform — which includes a return to one-room schoolhouses, a disbelief in man-made global warming, and an affinity for tri-corner hats — fending off a tidal wave of donations shouldn’t be a problem.
