What's Good For DeLay May Not Be Good For The GOP
Check out this from today's Under The Dome
in the AAS:
Democrats should keep this in mind when the U.S. Supreme Court hears the Texas congressional redistricting case next week:
If the court eventually throws out the map inspired by U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay, the Sugar Land Republican might see his contested November election against former U.S. Rep. Nick Lampson evaporate.
If the Supremes force Texas to use its old congressional map, Lampson, formerly a Beaumont Democrat, might prefer to run in his old district that the DeLay plan eliminated in 2004.
That would leave Democrats hustling to find a replacement to take out DeLay, assuming, of course, he wins the March 7 GOP primary.
This is all speculation, of course. Would the GOP allow the whole plan to be scrapped just to save one man? Isn't it ironic that the only thing that could save DeLay is the map that he worked so hard to get rid of? Paging Mr. Morrison, Mr. Richard Morrison
