ELECTION ’02 FLASH
”MAN OF THE PEOPLE”
Raul Damas of Opiniones Latinas makes this point:
One of the more racist attacks against Miguel Estrada, President Bush’s nominee to the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, was that his being a brilliant lawyer from a middle-class family, meant that, in the words of Sen. Leahy, Estrada “did not exactly share in the experiences of most Latinos.”


One would think this kind of low expectation-mongering would keep the Dems from backing the mostly self-financed campaign of Texas oil millionaire Tony Sanchez. One would be wrong. Sanchez has spent $60 million of his own money only to be down by 10 points with a week to go in the TX Governor’s race. Maybe next time the Democrats will run someone who has shared “the experiences of most Latinos.”
