What about Dan Morales?
1) Morales sent a courier to file and refused to be interviewed. Meaning that he is not sure if he is going to run or not but he had to file in case he did decide to run. He had a meeting with Barnes yesterday and Barnes begged him to run. Morales knew WorldPeace would write an epistle and that would let him know whether to run or back out saying he had not made up his mind but had to file to give himself time to think.
2) If both Sanchez and Morales stay in the race, there will be a White Democrat backlash at too many minorities running in the Senate and Governor races.
3) Hispanics will become mad at the fact that by fighting each other Sanchez and Morales will call everyone's attention to the fact that the best the Hispanics have to offer for governor are two corrupt individuals who have been investigated by the Feds. Toss in Henry Cisneros and his intemperate sexual escapades and the fact that Morales found his wife in a strip bar (not disparaging Ms. Morales but calling attention to the fact that Dan had to be bar hopping to have met her). Here we go with another Clinton Monica deja vu.
4) Morales filing for governor when he is being investigated by the Feds shows just how blatant corruption has become in Texas. What is he going to do if he wins (no chance that he will beat Perry) and the Feds find him guilty of something related to the tobacco case. Or worse, before the general election they find something and then his presence on the ballot taints the entire down ballot and gives victory to the Republicans.
5) WorldPeace has the Democratic Black voters who are not going to vote for a Hispanic. That's 15% of the vote.
6) WorldPeace has the Democratic White voters who are sick of the Hispanic take over and who will have their prejudices affirmed that all Hispanics are corrupt and immoral. That's another 50% of the vote.
7) If Sanchez drops out it proves that the corrupt Ben Barnes is the master puppeteer to the detriment of every citizen in Texas.

2 Chronicles 20
Jehoshaphat's Prayer and Victory
14Then the spirit of the LORD came upon Jahaziel son of Zechariah, son of Benaiah, son of Jeiel, son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, in the middle of the assembly. 15He said, "Listen, all Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem, and King Jehoshaphat: Thus says the LORD to you: 'Do not fear or be dismayed at this great multitude; for the battle is not yours but God's. 16Tomorrow go down against them; they will come up by the ascent of Ziz; you will find them at the end of the valley, before the wilderness of Jeruel. 17This battle is not for you to fight; take your position, stand still, and see the victory of the LORD on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.' Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, and the LORD will be with you."
18 Then Jehoshaphat bowed down with his face to the ground, and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell down before the LORD, worshiping the LORD. 19And the Levites, of the Kohathites and the Korahites, stood up to praise the LORD, the God of Israel, with a very loud voice.
20 They rose early in the morning and went out into the wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, "Listen to me, O Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem! Believe in the LORD your God and you will be established; believe his prophets." 21When he had taken counsel with the people, he appointed those who were to sing to the LORD and praise him in holy splendor, as they went before the army, saying,
"Give thanks to the LORD,
for his steadfast love endures forever."
22As they began to sing and praise, the LORD set an ambush against the Ammonites, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah, so that they were routed. 23For the Ammonites and Moab attacked the inhabitants of Mount Seir, destroying them utterly; and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they all helped to destroy one another.
24 When Judah came to the watchtower of the wilderness, they looked toward the multitude; they were corpses lying on the ground; no one had escaped.
