U.S. Senate Candidate Visits East Texas

He's running to for U.S. Senate and he's making a stop right here in East Texas. U.S. Senate candidate Rick Noriega will visit with East Texas leaders and ride in Saturday's Stage Coach Days Parade as his campaign gains statewide momentum for the November general election.  

Noriega is running as the U.S. Senate Democratic Primary candidate. This weekend, Noriega is in Marshall campaigning. Today, Marshall held a press conference and spoke on important issues such as gas prices and the war in Iraq. Noriega even challenged his appointment,  Senator John Cornyn for a debate, here in East Texas.

"I think Senator Cornyn ought to come here to Marshall. This would be a great opportunity at Wiley College institution to stand up and talk about his votes on veterans issues. I would be incredibly humble to debate with him at Wiley College," said Noriega. 

 If you didn't get a chance to see Rick Noriega, you can see him on Saturday. He'll be riding in the Marshall Stage Coach Days Parade. The parade kicks off at 10:00 a.m.
