Sadler: Experience is trump card in race

September 13, 2012

It's been a decade since Democrats have been much more than an afterthought in statewide races, but Paul Sadler believes he has the experience and the issues to buck that trend.

Now all he needs is money and exposure.

Sadler, the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senator, stopped in Big Spring during a swing through West Texas Tuesday, and took the opportunity to explain why people should vote for him rather than his better-known opponent, Republican Ted Cruz.

A South Texas native, Sadler touts his experience as a state representative as his biggest advantage over Cruz.
