Things that make you go ‘hmm…’
After losing a House race for Nevada’s 3rd District in November, Dan Rodimer is now running in a special election for a U.S. House seat in Texas.
Now, not only is this basic carpet-bagging, but Rodimer (a former professional wrestler) has done a complete 180 on his image hoping the folks in Texas don’t notice.
During the race in Nevada, Rodimer ran campaign ads sitting on his couch with his wife and 5 children in a prim, proper environment wearing a nice polo shirt.
But in his new ads for Texas’s 6th District, he’s morphed into a rough and tough rodeo character – ‘Big Dan’ Rodimer – complete with some kind of accent. I’m a Texas native myself and I don’t know what he thinks he sounds like.
The House seat located in the Dallas area was left vacant after Rep. Ron Wright passed away due to COVID-19.
It’s a competitive race as Donald Trump barely won the district in 2020 by 3 points, down from winning it in 2016 by 20 points.
There are nearly a dozen candidates running in the May 1 special election including Wright’s wife.
Take a look at the side-by-side Rodimers.
