Rafael Anchia ID’ed By Politico.com As “One To Watch” Outside The Beltway

As the site notes, Anchia has already gotten a lot of attention statewide. “Anchia already has been referred to as ‘El Gobernador‘ by Texas Monthly. Dallas’s D Magazine went further, asking: ‘Is Rafael Anchia the Hispanic Obama?‘ ”

The site asks the same question we did, basically, which is, “When will Anchia make the leap to the national stage?” (They talk less about his dancing ability, though. BO-ring!) He again says that’s a flattering question, and then declines to answer it. Former Rep. Martin Frost (D-Texas), among others, isn’t so shy:

“He considered running for mayor of Dallas, and I discouraged him from doing that. …Mayor of Dallas has been a dead-end job for many politicians,” said Frost, who described the legislator as a person of “virtually unlimited potential. He could be governor of the state of Texas someday. He could be a member of Congress. Certainly, he could be a United States senator.”
