Jim Hightower

Author, radio commentator, nationally-syndicated columnist, Former Texas Agriculture Commissioner

Jim Hightower is a best-selling author, radio commentator, nationally-syndicated columnist, and editor of The Hightower Lowdown, a populist political newsletter. He has spent the past four decades battling the Powers That Be on behalf of the Powers that ought-to-be: consumers, working-families, small businesses, farmers, environmentalists and just-plain-folks. Twice-elected to statewide office in Texas, Jim is an all-around populist agitator who believes that the true political spectrum is not right to left, but top to bottom. Political columnist Molly Ivins said, “If Will Rogers and Mother Jones had a baby, Jim Hightower would be that rambunctious child — mad as hell, with a sense of humor.”
