The Muse has a host of interesting tidbits concerning the state of the selection process in CD22. The latest buzz:
deal has been reached between three of the four counties involved in selecting Tom DeLay's replacement on the ballot in Congressional District 22 - Harris, Brazoria and Galveston. Who does that leave out? Fort Bend County. Does this explain Gary Gillen's (Fort Bend Republican Party Chair) decision to cancel the scheduled June 8th candidate forum? So who does the rumor mill say is Nick Lampson's opponent:
I won't say a whole lot more on Talton right now since we are at the level of rumor, but I will say that some of my friends have been saying for awhile, "Please let it be Talton! Please let it be Talton!" If that tells you anything.
"Why would you want to replace the worst Congressman in America with one of the worst legislators in Texas?"
Anyway. There's more good stuff at the link above. We're about a week out from DeLay's official departure from Congress (woo hoo!), but it all gets a little murky after that. Stay tuned.Posted by Charles Kuffner on June 02, 2006 to Election 2006 | TrackBack
