Court rules Dingus can be on the ballot

The last ballot access battle for 2008 that I am aware of has been resolved.

Texas House Speaker Tom Craddick, R-Midland, will have a Democratic opponent this fall.

State District Judge Margaret Cooper ruled [Monday] afternoon that Bill Dingus, a former Midland City Council member, can appear on the ballot.

Questions had been raised whether Dingus had resigned from the council in time to be on the ballot.

See here for some background. Evan Smith would like you to know that he had nothing whatsoever to do with this.
