Ted Williams is looking to go from no house to the White House.
The former homeless man from Ohio became famous overnight after he appeared in a video by The Columbus Dispatch panhandling on a highway ramp with a sign advertising his golden voice. The video’s millions of views led to national television appearances and earned Williams numerous voice-over jobs.
And now, he’s running for President of the United States as an independent, according to The AP.
Williams made the announcement this week on Scott Spears’ “Now” radio program on WWGH-FM in Marion, Ohio.
Williams says he hasn’t established a campaign staff and won’t elaborate on fundraising efforts. He says he plans to focus on fair housing, veterans’ issues, jobs and improving schools.
He says he’s recently been appearing at corporate events and public speaking engagements.
