There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the Republican U.S. Senatorial candidates who want to replace Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. Michael Williams and Roger Williams have both switched from running for the Senate to running for Congress. Lt. Gov. Dewhurst seems poised to jump in any day now and Ted Cruz is receiving a new major endorsement every other day. However, the Democratic candidates are missing in action. To such a degree that Texas Democrats must be contemplating putting pictures of their candidates on milk cartons with the caption, “Have you seen this person?” After all, a person would be more likely to see their name on a milk carton than to see them anywhere else.
The best example of the missing Democrats can be found with retired Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez’s campaign. He filed paper work to run for the U.S. Senate nearly 2 months ago, but has disappeared since then. He has had no media coverage, no presence on the internet, and has no supporters rallying around him. I tried googling “Ricardo Sanchez” to find out more about him and take a look at his website. I found nothing beyond that he was considering a run for the senate and I gave up on the 25th search page, as I sought to find his website. Below I have listed some sites that are ranked higher than Texas’ top Democratic U.S. Senatorial candidate’s website:
- A draft Ricardo Sanchez for U.S. Senate blog post… from the year 2007
- A WhitePages link letting me know there are 37 people with name Ricardo Sanchez living in New York
- Koi fish pond graphics by Richardo Sanchez(not the General)
- An blog post by “Ms. Sparky” about how Richardo Sanchez sold his soul for $650/hr
- Contact information for State Farm agent, Ricardo Sanchez, who lives in Michigan
This really concerns me that Sanchez is missing. Even though I’m a conservative, I want to do my part to help find him. I don’t want my democratic friends to get too lonely in the senate race. It’s not their fault his liberal ideals are falling flat with the people of Texas. Please email, tweet, or facebook out the below graphic asking your friends if they have seen this person or any other democrat who is running to replace Sen. Hutchison.
By the way I finally found his website and it’s www.sanchezforsenate.com
