Earlier this year, I resigned from the U.S. House of Representatives and became a resident of the State of Virginia to establish my new business, and where I now legally reside, pay taxes and vote.
This decision was and is irrevocable, which I made clear from Day One.
The Texas republican party is going to try to rally around a write-in candidate, but with Delay still on the ballot it's a long shot at best. This pretty much gives the seat to the Democrat, Nick Lampson.
From the day Delay was removed from the leadership, I knew he was finished with Congress. It's hard to cede that kind of power and still want to play the game.
