Bottom line: Tom DeLay, David Wallace, Shelley Sekula Somethingorother, and Crazy Bob Talton have, combined, less than 30% of Nick Lampson's cash on hand. That, more than any aspect of the DeLay replacement-go-round, is the story of CD22 right now. Lampson has as big a war chest as any Texas incumbent, and his opposition is either writing six-figure checks to defense attorneys or sitting on comparative chump change. Everything else follows from that.
