'Rent 2 Damn High' candidate says political future not over
A New York City resident who achieved overnight stardom after appearing on a News 12 gubernatorial debate says that while he may not have won Tuesday's election, don't count him out of future races.
Jimmy McMillan is better known as the gubernatorial candidate who ran on the 'Rent Is 2 Damn High' ticket.
McMillan, 63, received almost 40,000 votes in Tuesday's election and says that the show of support is too great for him to ignore.
McMillan says the New York City mayoral race may be in his future, but won't consider running against President Obama in 2012.
