Larry Bensky in Huston, Texas (KPFT) interviews Geraldine Sam who is a candidate for congress.
Geraldine Sam, working class mother of four, challenges the political climate of 9th district. If nominated her opponent will be one of the most conservative republicans in congress, Steven Stockmen. The 9th District is riddled with poverty, inequality and illiteracy but heavily unionized. Sam is ignored by local press and is not the anointed candidate of the Democratic Party but claims to have the popular support of district. Sam’s campaign is being outspent by a least 10 to 1 by other democratic candidates. Sam claims Democrats not campaigning effectively against Steven Stockman.
