There’s only one Democrat running in CD22

We all need to be clear about that.

KP George

Both candidates seeking the Democratic nomination for the congressional seat famously held for two decades by Tom DeLay, the former House majority leader, are unusual.

K.P. George’s background makes him an improbable candidate — he was born in a village in India that still has no electricity or running water. For Kesha Rogers, it is her political positions that stand out — she is best known for demanding President Obama’s impeachment.

In light of Rogers’ candidacy, the Fort Bend County Democratic Party’s executive committee has issued a rare primary endorsement, backing George.

“If I can figure out what that silver bullet is to make sure that she is not on my slate after May, then I’ll definitely do that,” said Steve Brown, chairman of the Fort Bend Democratic Party. “I don’t think the endorsement alone is going to do it. It’s going to take work.”

I’ve covered this before, but it can’t be said enough. We know who Kesha Rogers is, and we know what she stands for. Neither are compatible with the positions and values of the Democratic Party. The good news is that this Trib story probably represents more coverage than Rogers and the CD22 primary got in all of 2010, so hopefully that and the experience of having nominated her once before will be enough to ensure that people know not to do it again. It’s really very simple: KP George is the only Democrat running in CD22. Just remember that if you live in the district, and make sure you vote for him in May so you can vote for him again in November.

    what charles kuffner fails to tell the reader is this-kesha rogers name id is super super strong with the voters in this district-the majority that go to the dem primary will not have seen any media on this race,there voting names comparable—- and in this district rogers beats out george any day of the week-its actually not about politics in this race,in order to beat rogers in this district you need a name like washington-or johnson-or drexler,or dawson or miles or white or brown or a name like rodgers or harrison you get the idea….

    but the name george cant win againt a rogers in this race,impossible,

    k rogers with 58 percent with george at 42 percent—–easy call again

    Joshua Bullard has got to right on this one. Is off the Fitz even in the district?

    KP has it.

    Undoubtly. Kesha should be no challenge.

    Bullard is a republican manipulator.

    If you look at the breakdown of the vote much of Keisha’s vote came from crossover voters in the Clear Lake area who wanted to make sure the incumbent, Pete Olson, was re-elected with token opposition. Olson of course has been little more than a train wreck as a representative.

    CD22 citizens are not focused on impeaching Obama and colonizing Mars. They are focused on having good jobs, retiring with good Medicare and Social Security, and making sure kids have A+ education. Doesn’t matter R or D. Im pretty conservative, but I know Id never want an extremist representing me!
