In DeLay Case, GOP Wants Quick Decision

The Hill explains it.

There are some cases where elected officials positively thrive from the image of being persecuted. If forced to run, Tom Delay would benefit from that, I am sure. But I doubt that his district is Republican enough for that angry, committed core to carry him to reelection. Ironically, that's probably because Delay gave up some heavily-Republican areas in the infamous Texas redistricting that he engineered to create more Republican seats.

In more ways than one, he may be hoisted on his own petard.

Back to the top.
