ABSTRACT
The article reports on the request of Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn, who has used the slogan "One Tough Grandma" for a number of years to Secretary of State Roger Williams to list her on the ballot as Carole Keeton "Grandma" Strayhorn if she is certified as an independent candidate for governor in Texas. Candidates are allowed to use a nickname on the ballot if they have been commonly known by that name under the state's law.
