According to her campaign biography, Kesha Rogers was born to a lower middle class family on December 9, 1976 with her father being a minister and construction worker and her mother working for the Houston Independent School District. She graduated from Texas State University in 2001 with a degree in Political Science and Speech Communications. She has criticized “the standard institutions of higher education” as the biggest barrier towards students wanting a real classical education, and has expressed an interest in recruiting young people to the LaRouche Youth Movement. Rogers ran unsuccessfully for chairman of the Texas Democratic Party in 2006. She is a former Democratic candidate for the 22nd congressional district in Texas.
On March 2, 2010 Rogers ran in the Democratic primary election for the US House Texas 22nd District against two opponents, Doug Blatt and Freddy John Wieder, Jr., winning the election.
During her 2010 primary campaign for U.S. Representative, Rogers accused President Obama of disparaging John F. Kennedy’s legacy by proposing to end NASA’s Constellation program. She rejects the anthropogenic global warming theory and argues that London banking interests are trying to ruin America’s economy.
Rogers’ opponent in the general election was incumbent Pete Olson, who ran unopposed in the Republican primary. Rogers lost to Olson, 29.8% to 67.5%.
Rogers continued to work on behalf of LaRouchePAC through 2011 and 2012.
Rogers announced her candidacy again for the 2012 election. The 2012 Democratic Primary in Fort Bend is currently scheduled for 29 May.
