Roll Call is reporting that DeLay is positioning himself to reclaim the Majority Leader post if his case is tossed by Judge Pat Priest.
According to CNN via Roll Call:
"But DeLay and his aides have already drafted a letter to House Republican Conference Chairwoman Deborah Pryce (Ohio) informing her that he is ready to return as Majority Leader, several Republican sources said. The letter was written in anticipation of the possibility that Priest, during last Tuesday's hearing on the DeLay allegations, would dismiss the case. It was never sent to Pryce because Priest asked for more time to consider motions from DeLay's legal team and Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle."
