Rogers Shakes up Dem Race for U.S. Senate



By Don Morgan 

She promises to "Impeach" President Barack Obama if she's elected to the United States Senate--what does Democrat Kesha Roger' candidacy say about her party these days in the Lone Star State? 

"She is emblematic of the sorry state the Texas Democratic Party finds itself in" said Rice University Political Science Department Chair Mark Jones. He told 550 KTSA News he is not surprised however at the sizeable lead Rogers has in the polls over the "mainstream" Democratic Senate Candidate David Alameel. 

"They were unable to recruit a high-quality candidate for the top of the ticket race for U.S. Senate--and as a reult, they have a group of unknowns running--and she is one of the unknowns" Jones said. 

Rogers is a self-proclaimed Lyndon Larouche Democrat--Jones said Larouche's followers often run as Democrats in races where the Party doesn't stand a good chance of winning in the general election.
