AUSTIN (AP) — Little-known rancher Jim Hogan has defeated singer and humorist Kinky Friedman to claim the Democratic nomination for Texas agriculture commissioner.

Hogan, of Cleburne, topped Friedman in Tuesday’s runoff after no candidate won more than 50 percent in the three-way March primary.

The agricultural commissioner oversees the school-lunch program in Texas while more broadly handling farming issues.

Friedman ran unsuccessfully as an independent for governor in 2006 and lost the Democratic nomination for agricultural commissioner in 2010.

Hogan made it to the runoff despite minimal campaigning.
