CD 22 Update - Delay declared ineligible

Texas GOP Chairman Tina Benkiser has declared U.S. Congressman Tom Delay ineligible to be on the Republican ballot in November. Click here for her statement.

This officially starts the replacement process. The Republican party chairmen in Galveston, Harris, Fort Bend, and Brazoria Counties now have to call a meeting of the CD 22 Precinct Chairs in their respective counties.

State party rules require a specific time period in terms of notice, so most of the meetings will be after June 21st. The only agenda item on the meetings will be to select the name of one of the precinct chairs from each county to serve as an elector on the CD 22 District Committee.

Once those names are forwarded to the state party, Chairman Benkiser will call a meeting for the four electors to select the replacement nominee.

With any luck, we should have a new Republican nominee for CD 22, that everyone can rally behind, by the end of the month.

Based on what I heard from the CD 22 delegates and precinct chairs at the state convention, the most conservative of the declared candidates (based on proven, documented votes on conservative issues) State Reps Robert Talton and Charlie Howard appear to be the front runners.
