Rick Noriega is an accomplished state representative in Texas, who also served our nation in Kabul, Afghanistan after 9/11.
Rick hasn't endorsed either candidate for President yet, instead telling one newspaper as follows:
"I'm for whoever wins," he replies diplomatically, before twirling into the second half of his answer: "I'm for who's going to come back to Texas and help us fight (to) win Texas."
Noriega falls back to Alamo imagery. "I'm drawing a line in the sand. My focus is which one of you (Obama or Clinton) is committed to help us win Texas back.
"At the end of the day," Noriega said, "I want to know who's going to be in the foxhole with us."
We know Barack Obama will be in that foxhole with him, and will execute the 50-state strategy to turn Texas blue and elect Rick Noriega to the Senate seat once held by Lyndon Baines Johnson.
