Burnt Orange Report Endorses David Alameel for US Senate

In the Democratic run-off election for the Senate, Burnt Orange Report unanimously endorses Dr. David Alameel, as he is clearly the best candidate in the race.

Burnt Orange Report's original endorsee in the Democratic Senate primary, El Paso attorney Maxey Scherr, finished in third place in March, leaving two candidates to compete in the run-off. Between the two, there is very little contest as to who would make the better Democratic nominee for Senate--that candidate is David Alameel.

Alameel, a wealthy Dallas-area dentist, finished first in the March election with 47%, just barely below the 50% needed to avoid a run-off. He has received the endorsement of important Texas Democrats like Wendy Davis. Moreover, Alameel's vast personal wealth means that he will have the resources to run a professional campaign and help get out the vote for Democrats in this crucial election year.

The other candidate in the race is fake Democrat Kesha Rogers. Kesha Rogers is not a serious candidate, and should not receive support from Texas Democrats. She is a part of the fringe LaRouche movement, and has previously compared President Obama to Hitler and called for his impeachment and execution. The Texas Democratic Party has actively campaigned against Rogers.

It is imperative that Texas Democrats do NOT vote for Kesha Rogers.

In order to build party infrastructure, the first step for Texas Democrats is to have serious, credible candidates. David Alameel is the best candidate for US Senate, and it is vital that Democrats turn out on May 27 to make sure he is the Democratic nominee.

BOR unanimously endorses David Alameel in the run-off for US Senate, and urges voters to support his campaign.

Vote for the DINO! (0.00 / 0)
Oh yes -- we definitely need more white male Democratic candidates with "vast personal wealth" which was ill-gotten from Wall Street speculation. We also need more Democratic candidates who fire their female employees if they complain about sexual harassment, and who have contributed heavily to Republican candidates in the past. Thank you, Burnt Orange Report!
