As the overseer and director of Texas elections, Williams' office was in the spotlight during the 2006 Texas Governor's Race.  Independent candidate Richard Friedman (commonly known as "Kinky") successfully lobbied to have the name "Kinky" placed on the election ballot. Another Independent candidate, Carole Strayhorn sought to have the name "Grandma" placed on the ballot next to her name (Strayhorn's campaign slogan was "one tough grandma").  Strayhorn's attempt was denied.  Friedman and Strayhorn finished 3rd and 4th, respectively, in the election, behind Democrat Chris Bell and the winner, Incumbent Republican Rick Perry.
