The politics of the DeLay seat

Greg Giroux of CQPolitics says the seat is now leaning Democrat. If so that is only because of the success of the Democrat legal campaign and not because of sentiment in the district. What they have done is put hurdles in front of a Republican victory in a Republican leaning district. The Democrat candidate has no real base of support in this district. The only part of it that was in his old district is the Clear Lake area which did not support him.

The one advantage that his opponent has is that Republican voters are probably more capable of comprehending the mechanics of a write in campaign than would Democrat voters. Shelley Sekula-Gibbs has to get over the hurdles, but I would not be surprised to see a backlash against the Democrat's lawfare approach to politics.
