DeLay's Not Running, Period.

Apparently, the TX GOP had hoped that if they couldn't replace DeLay on the ballot (and they can't) that DeLay would run for the sole purpose of holding the seat for the GOP.

DeLay has now made it clear that he has intention of running thus forcing them to find a write-in candidate.

It's hard to imagine even in DeLay's conservative district that a write-in could win -- even assuming the party could agree on one candidate to back -- which they can't.

And finally, something not getting much press is that DeLay's Democratic challenger, Nick Lampson is not some sacrificial lamb, but a former Congressman forced out of Congress by DeLay's redistricting -- with substantial popular support.
