DeLay fights for his political life

On Tuesday Texas held its primaries for the 2006 elections, and with that kicked off what's likely to be one of the most tenaciously fought midterm election seasons in history.

"DeLay fights for his political life" - so read the headline for a Texas paper as all eyes turned toward Tom DeLay's primary battle. Now he's made it through, but not without being plenty bruised and bloodied in the process - in fact, 38% of Republicans voted against him. Everybody in his district and across the country knows that even his Republican support is waning, and now he has to go mano a mano with Democrat Nick Lampson, the strongest Democrat he's faced in decades.

And so the drama's begun. Over the coming months, state after state will hold their primaries, and the dogs will be unleashed. Democrats across the country will face attacks from Karl Rove and the gang; scandal-plagued Republicans will be outraged at accusations of unethical behavior as they keep one eye on any number of prosecutors on their tails; rank and file Republicans will grandstand, pretending to revolt against President Bush in hopes of convincing their voters that they aren't the obedient rubber stamps they've seemed to be for the past five years. It won't be pretty, and we won't let them get away with it.

So let's chat. I've enjoyed these online chats more every time, and I hope I'm getting better at answering all your questions and concerns.

What: Online Chat with DCCC Executive Director John Lapp
Where: //
When: Friday, March 10th - 10:00 AM

You can start submitting your questions at that url now, or drop by and ask while the chat's going on. One of the reasons I enjoy these so much is that everybody who comes is so engaged and wise to the political game that we can really get into it.

Looking forward to it,


John Lapp
