“Draft Nick Lampson”

As things stand now, there are basically two Congressional seats in Texas that Democrats have a shot at taking away from Republicans in 2012. One is CD23, which is drawing a fair amount of interest. The other is CD14, thanks to decent partisan numbers and the fact that it is now an open seat. Whether that becomes an actual competitive contest still depends on a credible candidate taking it on. One strong possibility is former Rep. Nick Lampson, whose old CD09 covered a lot of the same turf as the new CD14. Lampson has expressed some interest in the seat but has not as yet made any commitment. To help him make that decision, there’s a Draft Nick Lampson Facebook page, which you ought to like and share if you’d like to see him gear up one more time. Nothing will come easy, and he’ll need all the help he can get if he decides to get in. Let’s start by helping him take that first step.

    When we spoke at the Dallas County East Democrats I had a feeling you might be looking to fidn some way to run. And, I have to tell you Texas and the Texas 14th District would be a better place if you did run. Of course, I’ve moved to Florida and so will find it really difficult to help in person. However, I’ll contribute to your campaign and encourage everyone I know to do otherwise. Since most of my contacts are in the Texas 5th any votes we can muster for you will come through there. Meanwhile, I hope it all goes well with you. You’re being elected would make me a little less ashamed to admit that I’m a Texas. Let me know if you think I can help… Take care… Charlie Thompson, 214-707-3754
