Many voters in Texas’ Democratic primary on Super Tuesday had to endure long lines to cast their ballots.
But in TExas one Democrat almost broke the record.
A Texas man waited nearly seven hours to cast his Super Tuesday vote, then left to work his late shift at 1:30 a.m. He had no complaints.
“It felt good,” Hervis Rogers told the Houston Chronicle Tuesday night.
Rogers was the last voter to cast a ballot at that primary spot and he did so after the AP reported Joe Biden had already edged out Bernie Sanders in the Lone Star state. The former vice president got just over 34% of the vote and captured 70 delegates. Sanders finished with 30% of the vote and 60 delegates. President Trump will be the Republican candidate on the 2020 ballot in Texas.
This is what we heard from the liberals and the mainstream media.

Public records indicate he’s not eligible to vote under Texas laws. The mainstream media didn’t bother to report this.
The Texan reported that state records indicate Hervis Rogers is not eligible to vote under Texas law.
According to records from the Texas Department of Public Safety, Rogers is on parole for a 1995 second degree felony offense conviction for burglary.
Under Texas Election Law, (Sec. 11.002) convicted felons are not eligible to vote until the convicted has “fully discharged the person’s sentence, including any term of incarceration, parole, or supervision, or completed a period of probation ordered by any court.”
Rogers’ parole does not end until June 13, 2020, but he had a Harris County voter registration card when he arrived at the TSU campus polling location Tuesday evening. Rogers says he got in line before 7 p.m. but did not cast his ballot until 1:30 a.m. Wednesday morning.
Although the Harris County Clerk’s office administers elections, the responsibility for verification of eligible voter registrations falls on the office of Ann Harris Bennett (D), the county’s Tax Assessor-Collector & Voter Registrar.
