Uncle Luke gets Political? Luther Campbell officially runs for Miami-Dade Mayor!


It appears Miami-Dade may have a new mayor in town folks! Earlier this week Luther Campbell aka “Uncle Luke” filed the necessary paper work to run for the mayor of Miami-Dade County. Before filing his paperwork, Campbell addressed a group at Miami Beach.

“My major hurdle is people taking me seriously, a lot of people think this is a joke,” Campbell told the crowd who swore he’s serious about the mayor’s job. “I call it a banana republic and I’m serious about it. You look at the commission and they make their own rules as they go, regardless of what the county attorney says, they make their own rules, just do what they want. They have no respect for the people.”

In the short video clip below, Campbell discusses his reasons for running. The winner of this election will serve out the remainder of former Mayor Carlos Alvarez’s term which ends in November 2012.

My only question is, will there be a club song incorporated into his campaign?

“Pop them votes baby, pop them votes baby! Shake them flyers baby, shake them flyers baby! I’m gonna vote, I’m gonna vote, I’m vote! (Do-Do Brown melody). I’m sure I’m not the only one who wanted to know. Ha!

BTW, whatever happened to my man, Jimmy McMilliam and the Rent is TOO DAMN HIGH party? I’m feeling a Uncle Luke and Jimmy collabo on this one. Just my thoughts. Stay tuned…
