Texans head to the polls Tuesday for a handful of primary runoff elections, including one that could elevate a woman who compares President Barack Obama to Hitler.
On March 4, no candidate secured a majority of the vote in the election for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in Texas. Dallas dentist David Alameel received 47.1 percent of the vote, and political activist Kesha Rogers garnered 21.7 percent. Texas Democrats will choose between the two of them in a runoff contest Tuesday. The winner will face a long-shot bid against incumbent Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas).
The results were somewhat embarrassing for the Texas Democratic Party. 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!”
Rogers has compared Obamacare to the policies of the Nazi regime.
The Texas Democratic Party has been working hard to get the word out that it is fully behind Alameel.
