Senator Clinton and Noriega

Senator Clinton and Noriega

2 on the Beat told you earlier in the week that U.S. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton would travel to the Rio Grande Valley to endorse State Rep. Rick Noriega for U.S. Senate.

The campaign sent this picture to me. It is the first image that I have seen so far that captures the obviously happy mood during theĀ  endorsement.

You can see all of the local TV stations microphones on the podium, but it is difficult for Houston stations to get video out of the Valley. (or maybe I just missed it!)

Noriega, a democrat, is running against incumbent republican U.S. Senator John Cornyn.

On the same day that Senator Clinton was endorsing her fellow democrat, the Cornyn campaign sent out a news releaseĀ  announcing that he was being endorsed by 40 elected officials from across South Texas.
