It's Just Two...er...Three
Sugar Land Mayor David Wallace has decided to drop out of the race for Tom DeLay's old seat in the 22nd Congressional District.
The Houston Chronicle reports Wallace cited the need for GOP unity as his reason for dropping out.
Now is the time for all Republicans to unite around one candidate and preserve our conservative voice in Congress," Wallace said during a news conference at Sugar Land City Hall.That now leaves Democratic candidate former Rep. Nick Lampson, anointed Republican candidate Houston Councilwoman Shelley Sekula-Gibbs and the guy who thought he'd pick up a few conservative votes without a GOP name of the ballot, Libertarian Bob Smither.
Howling Latina thinks good ol' Wallace just wanted to keep his name in the hat for '08. This year the seat is moving to the Democratic side of the aisle and a losing campaign is hardly a ringing advantage in two years.
