Watts a NO SHOW at the Johnson-Rayburn-Richardson Dinner

I just want to say up front that I was not an attendee at this dinner so this is all second or even third hand. But what I heard is that Mikal Watts, who bought a $10 thousand table at this evening’s event in Houston, Texas, that he bought a table that entitled him to introduce the evening’s keynote speaker, Congressman Rahm Emmanuel, who commands the DCCC, failed to show up. No one on his staff did either. His table was filled by a bunch of Young Democrats (more power to them).

Was it a slight of the D-triple-C against too Red Texas? Was it a scheduling problem? Was it the fact that Rahm Emmanuel needs to distance himself from the guy who bought the introduction?

We will never know.

What we do know is that when Rick Noriega was introduced to the attendees at the Johnson-Rayburn-Richardson Dinner, the house arose with a roar of approval.

I am prevented by prior agreement, about relaying just what specifically happened, just let’s say it was amazing. Rick Noriega is the clear choice of Democrats across the state.

Help out. Sign his petition. Join his campaign. Donate.

So much to do. So little time.
