Kesha Rogers, Lyndon LaRouche Disciple, Heads to Run-Off Election in Texas Senate Race
Kesha Rogers, a political activist who wants to impeach President Barack Obama, is still in the running to become the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate in Texas, after no candidate secured a majority of the votes in Tuesday’s primary election. Rogers, who garnered 21.7 percent, will face Dallas dentist David Alameel, who received 47.1 percent, in a run-off on May 27.
Rogers and Alameel were the top two vote-getters in the five-way contest Tuesday. The winner of the Democratic primary will face Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), who easily won his primary contest despite a challenge from Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas), who tried to argue that the incumbent senator was too liberal.
Even if she wins, Rogers will get no support from the Texas Democratic Party. She 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!”
