Perry calls special election for DeLay seat

Houston Chronicle:

Gov. Rick Perry today officially set the special election to fill the unexpired term of U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay to coincide with the general election on Nov. 7.

Candidates wishing to run in the special election must file by 5 p.m. Sept. 1 with the Texas Secretary of State to appear on the ballot.

This should help Houston City Councilwoman Shelley Sekula-Gibbs' Republican write in campaign since it will be easier for people to spell her unusual name correctly. If she wins she could get a leg up on seniority over others newly elected to congress.
