For me, Rick Noriega’s race is about hope. I hope that he can prove that anybody, even someone without a big purse, can run for office and get elected if you have the best answers.
Money isn’t all it takes to win a race. And, Noriega is doing everything right. He’s out there, among the people (although, by and large, the media fails to take notice of this), and he’s talking about a lot of issues, while John Cornyn continues to “one-note” the campaign with “drill here, drill now” arguments.
