It's no joke. Ron White, Fritch native and one of the founding members of the legendary Blue Collar Comedy Tour, is a 2016 presidential candidate. White has appeared on several shows to discuss his views and campaign. He's not concerned with his "outsider" candidacy nor lack of political experience.
