Houston Chronicle endorses Campbell for TX-22 primary

DeLay' laying the ground work for the Fall

I'm not writing off the primary challengers. Who knows? But it's not likely any of them will knock him off.

What is clear though, is that DeLay is running a smart campaign on the ground.

Picture says a thousand words, indeed


Now appearing in Tom DeLay's district.

Bill Moyers' Speech: Saving Democracy

Bill Moyers has been barnstorming California on an eight-day speaking tour focusing his considerable intellect and voice on the scandals in Washington and what we can do to clean up politics.

Public Campaign's (and Daily DeLay's!) very own Nancy Watzman and Micah Sifry helped in the drafting of the speech, and we are proud to post it on our affiliated site over at Public Campaign.

DeLay's Letter to Constituents

Think Progress has a copy of DeLay's handwritten letter to his constituents in TX-22 (primary only a few weeks away!) with this image being the most incredulous part:

[I]t is a diminished DeLay who is fighting for his political life.

The only perk he's got left of his leadership life is his security detail...

People close to DeLay say that he is frustrated by his evaporating ability to act and distracted by his re-election battle.

Off to the races

Today is the big day: House Republicans will vote on which version of DeLay-ism will be their new majority leader: Roy Blunt (R-MS), John Boehner (R-OH), or John Shadegg (R-AZ).
