A good short speech that didn’t overdo it on platitudes, just a good speech recognizing the work of the Young Democrats in getting new voters registered, and recognizing his colleagues in the State House. He finished with this:
“We are at a critical time in our nation’s history. Perhaps one of the most critical that we have ever known. And I just can’t emphasize enough what your leadership and what this next election cycle is at stake. Now. I will share with you what Chairman Richie has said, I will underscore this again: I don’t care if you are for Obama, and I don’t care if you are for Hillary, but you had better be for Noriega."
That pretty much says it in a nutshell. No matter who you back for president, this is the guy that all Texans can get behind.
Because God knows, Texans don’t need to vote for that other guy. Not that other guy. That other guy who is temporarily holding Lyndon Johnson’s seat in the Senate. That other guy who votes against our troops every chance he can get.
No, whoever we want in the White House, Rick Noriega is the man we want in the Senate.
