Meet Kesha Rogers, Democratic frontrunner:
As an acolyte of perennial presidential fringe candidate Lyndon LaRouche, she believes the U.S. economy is secretly controlled by a cabal of London financial institutions. She’s paraded around Houston with a giant picture of Obama sporting a Hitler mustache and compared the Affordable Care Act to 1930s-era Nazi eugenics policies…She also advocates increased NASA funding so America can use missiles to defend against asteroids, and to colonize Mars.

To repeat, this woman leads her party’s Senate field by eight points. If the primaries were held tomorrow, Wendy Davis and Kesha Rogers would sit atop Texas Democrats’ ticket heading into November. Turn Texas Blue — Because Texans deserve serious, non-insane leadership, or something!
