CRAWFORD, Texas – Rodrigo Sanchez, a retired rancher and “lifelong Texan,” launched his presidential campaign on Tuesday, seeking to stand out in an already crowded GOP primary race.
“They said it couldn’t be done before, but when I ran for the board of the Texas Ranchers’ Union, I started out at the back of the pack and proved them wrong,” Sanchez said. “We did it before, and we’ll do it again!”
“The country right now is on a very bad course. What our party and our country need right now is strong leadership, and that’s something I know I can provide. Back in 2001 when two community grain silo towers collapsed, I was able to unite an entire county in the rebuilding effort.”
In his announcement speech, Sanchez focused on his two terms as head of the Texas Ranchers’ Union in the early 2000’s, promising the same harsh stance on extremist groups that he took with cattle rustlers.
“I’ll tell the world the same thing I told the Tri-State Dairy and Cattle Grazing Rights governing board. You’re either with us or you’re with the cattle-terrorists.”
“As far as I’m concerned,” Sanchez added, “This amazing country of ours has two major exports: delicious Texas beef and freedom.”
