DSCC's Mystery Candidate Revealed In Texas

April 16, 2011

It looks like the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee's secret recruit in the Texas Senate race has been unveiled.

McClatchy reports that it's likely none other than former Iraq commander Ricardo Sanchez, who was forced out of his military post in 2004 after the Abu Ghraib scandal. Sanchez retired from the military in 2006.

"I would describe myself as during my military career as supporting the president and the Constitution," Sanchez told the paper. "After the military, I decided that socially, I'm a progressive, a fiscal conservative and a strong supporter, obviously, of national defense."

DSCC Chair Patty Murray, at a briefing Thursday, announced that the open Texas Senate seat, vacated by retiring Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) was one of the six GOP-held seats that Democrats planned to aggressively target. She hinted the committee had a candidate in mind, but didn't disclose his identity.
