As we’ve learned over the course of the last few election cycles – anything can happen in the world of politics. Now, even after saying that – I don’t believe in luck! Nor do I believe in coincidences. However, I do believe that God is the controller of outcomes. And, that being said, I believe also believe that He allows things to happen, that we don’t understand sometime. But even in this, each of us has a role to play in the unfolding of God’s plan for our life. So, I’m not here to determine whether Rev. Michael Cooper has a snow-ball’s chance in hell of winning the Tuesday, March 1, 2022, Democratic Party Primary in the race for Governor of Texas. Nope, I’m not saying that at all. However, I am saying that nobody can win a race that they don’t have the courage to enter.
In his last bid for public office back on Tuesday, March 3, 2020, in the Democratic Party Primary race for United States Senate, Michael Cooper only managed to finish in eighth place in a field of twelve candidates. As a refresher, Mary "MJ" Hegar received 417,160 votes, Royce West received 274,074 votes, Christina Tzintzun Ramirez received 246,659 votes, Annie "Mama" Garcia received 191,900 votes, Amanda Edwards received 189,624 votes, Chris Bell received 159,751 votes, Sema Hernandez received 137,892 votes, Michael Cooper received 92,463 votes, Victor Hugo Harris received 59,710 votes, Adrian Ocegueda received 41,566 votes, Jack Daniel Foster Jr received 31,718 votes, and D.R. Hunter finished last with 26,902 votes. In the end, Mary "MJ" Hegar won the runoff election over Royce West, but ended up getting demolished by United States Senator John Cornyn in the Tuesday, November 3, 2020, general election.
THROWS HIS HAT IN THE RING
For those of you who don’t Rev. Michael Cooper, he unsuccessfully ran for the United States Senate back in the Tuesday, March 3, 2020 Democratic Party Primary. In that race, Rev. Cooper only managed to finish eight in a field of twelve Democratic hopefuls. And back on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, in the last Midterm Election he ran for Lieutenant Governor and lost that bid as well. However, he’s now, put those losses behind him, and has thrown his hat back into the ring hoping to earn the Democratic nomination in the race for Governor of Texas on Tuesday, March 1, 2022. “I want to make sure our teachers come first because our children come first,” said the former president of the Beaumont Chapter of the NAACP in a recently published news article.
