DeLay's Out - The Hammer is Exterminated!
The WaPo's Jonathan Weisman and Chris Cillizza, along with other sources, are reporting "Rep. DeLay Won't Seek Reelection" so I'm thinking warm fuzzy thoughts. Of course now the ReThuglicans might try to get a candidate in that could very well hold the seat. Complicated legal issue perhaps but if I understand things correctly with Tom retiring to Virginia the Texas GOP can put up another candidate. The Democrats are running former Rep. Nick Lampson who is a very solid candidate. Plus there's an independent in the mix. This TX-22 District was actually gerrymandered by Hot Tub Tom to help out other less secure candidates where the GOP has "only" 55% of the electorate. Peace ... or War!
