Here's the Chron story on Nick Lampson's offical announcement of his candidacy in CD22 for next year. Have I ever mentioned how annoying I find it when a story about one candidate is half filled with quotes from spokespeople for his opponent? Yes, I believe I have. Feel free to skip that and read the Galveston News and (even better) the Port Arthur News stories from just before his announcement. The AP wire story from the event itself is sufficient for that.
The one thing worth mentioning from the Chron story:
Houston City Council member Gordon Quan announced Tuesday that he's taking formal steps toward seeking the 2006 Democratic nomination in the 22nd, raising the possibility of a primary race against Lampson.
