      and had been taken the previous weeek.  An eternity in campaign politics, I'd say, being a month ago+.

      And how has Obama and Rmoney stayed the same in that time?  Sadler-Cruz have had two debates since then.  Texans are paying attention.

        He has been compared to Florida's Marco Rubio, but...

        The two Cuban Americans also differ on their ability to speak Spanish. Rubio is fully bilingual while Cruz told Fox News his Spanish is “lousy.”
        So, not working so well for him, I'd say, with Latinos.  Only somany Cuban-American Latinos in Texas, too.

            insult white folks, or Cubans?  Hard to tell...assume both!

            Niced to see you, Libby.

            It was a conversation with a relatively sane GOP neighbor who said she''ll vote for Sadler that got me thinking about this diary.  With the two additional endorsements (sorry, the Hou Chron apparently already gave up on Sadler, y'know 'cause he ... didn't have a chance and wasn't winnning) I saw today, I had to post this.  But even the DaMN endorsed him, so you KNOW they're unhappy with Cruz.  If it means anothr Dem., in the Senate, OK with me.
