WASHINGTON – There will be no replacement for former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay on the November ballot.
Delay’s name will remain on the ballot, unless he withdraws from the race for the Houston-area House seat he vacated earlier this year. In that case, there would be no Republican candidate to face Democrat Nick Lampson, a former House member. DeLay has until Aug. 25 to decide.
Texas Republicans on Monday abandoned their court fight to replace DeLay on the November ballot after being turned back at the Supreme Court.
