Left-wing loony Kesha Rogers has been making headlines for a few years now with her anti-Obama diatribe. But it’s no longer a laughing matter because Rogers is actually a front runner for a seat in the Senate.
Rogers is a loud-mouthed political activist who spews nonstop invectives at President Obama whom she wants impeached, and she even went so far as to compare his Obamacare to the policies of the Nazi regime.
Her uncouth and unscrupulous tactics are paying handsome dividends, however. Political “ratchetness” has unexpectedly surged the neophyte to front-runner status in the race to become Texas’ Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate.
Rogers is a follower of Lyndon LaRouche, who heads a fringe political movement that has been compared to a cult. His supporters are often seen carrying signs depicting Obama with a Hitler mustache. One of Rogers’ own campaign posters features that image, and reads, “Down with the Traitor! Impeach!”
Five candidates are facing off Tuesday in the Democratic primary election for the chance to unseat Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas in November. A February 24 poll by The University of Texas and The Texas Tribune showed Rogers leading the field.
The two-time loser of the Texas congressional seat is not getting the support of the Democratic Party. Former Rep. Martin Frost, D-Texas speculated on MSNBC Monday that Rogers’ boost is due to name recognition; she previously ran for Congress in 2010 and 2012.
Emmanuel Garcia, the communications director of the Texas Democratic Party, told The Huffington Post Tuesday that he didn’t expect any candidate would win the primary outright and that a run-off election was likely. In such a scenario, Garcia said he is confident that Rogers would lose.
Garcia added that Rogers has been on his radar for some time, and the party’s been trying to warn voters to steer clear of supporting her. It has disavowed the LaRouche organization, passing a resolution in December stating,
“Texas Democratic Party will have no relationship with the campaign of any person indentifying [sic] him or herself as aligned with the LaRouche Movement or Lyndon LaRouche.”
The party has also disseminated a fact sheet about Rogers to its members and local chairs.
