Dems Pick up Texas House Seat

That's probably what it will mean if DeLay is required to stay on the November ballot. Nevertheless, it will be challenged.

If DeLay is forced to stand for re-election, it will raise the possibility of a 'Mel Carnahan campaign.' In that case, Carnahan died before election day, but the governor promised to appoint his widow to the open seat if voters supported the deceased.

In this case, DeLay might promise to resign the seat, and force a special election. Thus, voters would effectively be voting for an empty seat.

Back to the top.
