Rapper Cornbreadd Fights Sheila Jackson Lee Re-Election

Rapper Cornbreadd will challenge US Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D.-Tx.) in her 18th congressional district re-election bid. Yet it seems the Houston-born native sounds more Republican than his main rival. In his campaign press release, he pledges to stand up for taxpayers’ and business owners’ rights, bring civility to Congress and represent the 18th district in a dignified manner.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, “Maurice Duhon Jr., who is also known by the rapper alias, Cornbreadd, is seeking a congressional career. His opponent: veteran Houston Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee, who has represented Houston’s 18th congressional district since 1995."

Duhon/Cornbreadd announced on Tuesday that he intends to run against Jackson Lee an independent candidate whose mantra is, “New Voice, New Choice.”

According to the Houston Chronicle, “in addition to running for the U.S. House of Representatives and rapping in the Houston area, Duhon also has a political blog entitled PoliticalAbyss.”

Cornbreadd blogged, “I hope within the coming months you have the opportunity to beome more familiar with myself and the Maurice Duhon for Congress Camapaign. Together, we can move the American taxpayer back into the driver’s seat of our nation’s economy. Together, we can bring your issues to your nation’s capital. Together we can work to elect a New Voice and a New Choice to represent the illustrious 18th District in your United States Congress. Thank you for taking time to read this message. I am grateful for the opportunity to run as a candidate in our 2012 elections. I am also humbled by the task at hand.”

I am thankful for your contribution to this discussion. I found it so awkward that some may give me guff over my past hobby of rapping to music, but reading one of your past articles, I believe you were speaking of the U.S. Rep Jackson-Lee referring to rappers as having a keen business insight and great entrepreneurial abilities? Am, I mistaken?
