Larry Kilgore

Larry Scott Kilgore (born 1964) is a Christian activist and frequent Republican candidate for public office.

Kilgore was born in Amarillo, Texas. His parents taught him their belief in the importance of reading the Bible and prayer; he tributes his grandmother for his memorization of Scripture.

He served in the United States Air Force from 1984 until 1988. He and his wife Valerie have three children: Renee, Scott, and Sam. The Kilgore children are home schooled and often accompany their father as he travels campaigning and speaking at political events.

He has been described as a Biblical Christian because of his expressed belief in biblical law as the foundation for all law.

Kilgore is an advocate for the secession of Texas from the United States. [ [http://www.texassecession.com Texas Secession ] ] He believes that Texas needs to become a free Christian nation where all public policy is biblically based. He is also a signatory of the Chattanooga Declaration which was passed at the Second Secessionist Convention on October 4, 2007.

Kilgore is most noted for his candidacy for governor of Texas in the 2006 Republican primary against Rick Perry, in which he received 7.64 percent (50,119) of votes cast [http://elections.sos.state.tx.us/elchist.exe] and as a 2008 Republican primary candidate for the United States Senate where, in opposing incumbent John Cornyn, he received 225,897 votes (18.51 percent). Cornyn won renomination with 994,222 votes (81.48 percent) and now faces the Democrat Rick Noriega of Houston in the November general election.
