Democrats Relect Delay

Published by at 12:42 pm under 2006 Elections,All General Discussions

I posted only a few short days ago that the Democrats in TX screwed up on reverse at full throttle when they required Tom Delay’s name to stay on the ballot this fall. Seems Delay will take up the option to run again if the courts decide he must:

A source close to the ex-Congressman tells TIME that DeLay is planning an aggressive campaign to retake the House seat he quit in June if an appeals court lets stand a ruling by a federal judge last week that his name must stay on November’s ballot—even though he has moved to Virginia.

“If it isn’t overturned, Katy bar the door!” says a G.O.P. official. “Guess he’ll have to fire up the engines on the campaign and let ‘er rip.”

Now there is no way to tarnish Reps with Delay getting back into the race and there is little chance he will be defeated. Chalk this up as another example of “stupid Democrat tricks”.

Update: Ed Morrissey says it all much better at his site. The Democrats have appied egg to their own faces on this one.

    Delay was originally taken out with a phony charge and a weak-kneed republican response. It seems he will now be able to stick it to the corrupt dems and the gutless republicans simply by doing what he should have been able to do in the first place–run for re-election. And as he was treated most shabbily by his own party, he should do everything in his power to make life in next years congress living hell for the rinos who betrayed him. He won’t, but few would blame him.

    If the Dems thought Delay represented a culture of corruption, just what would they make of this?:


    Another Clinton skeleton out of the closet? Is it going to make any difference? Your call. Another VRWC I guess. *spit*
