Political pepper: Robyn Williams reveals which movie made David Williams emotional

10/25/2011 10:59 PM

The knock on Republican candidate for governor David Williams is that he can be mean. Even one of his own commercials says he has a reputation for “not playing nice.”

But his wife Robyn Williams revealed another side of her husband — for instance crying at a movie.

“It will probably be the last movie he goes to see with me because he can get kind of emotional,” Robyn Williams said of the Republican state Senate president during a recent interview segment of “political pepper” on Pure Politics.

To find out which movie, watch the segment (the movie question comes up at 1:40 of the video).

Among other insights are:

  • David Williams’ favorite TV shows (2:40 of the interview)
  • What David Williams is best at cooking (5:00)
  • The couple’s favorite song (30 seconds)
  • Favorite family board/card games (45 seconds) — Old maid when the kids are playing, Battleship when it’s Williams vs. Williams.
“Nobody’s a sore loser,” she said.

This is part of an occasional series on the personal side of the candidates. Pure Politics previously aired a political pepper segment with first lady Jane Beshear about the governor.
