NYC's Naked Cowboy wants to be mayor

July 21, 2009 12:39:03 PM PDT
Mayor Bloomberg has another opponent to keep an eye on in his bid for re-election. The Naked Cowboy plans to run for office.

He says his platform is "bringing transparency to a whole new level."

Robert Burck, 38, is best known for standing in tighty-whiteys in Times Square, playing his guitar.

Burck says he has plenty of ideas on tax breaks, tourism, gay marriage, homeland security, and public transportation.

The Naked Cowboy says he will announce his campaign on Wednesday in Times Square.

The aspiring candidate's chief rival is incumbent Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is seeking a third term.
