Update on RPT Convention, CD 22 & CD 17 races

Chris Elam over at Texas Safety Forum has a very detailed recap of this past weekends Republican State Convention.

Chris also has some details on the process that will start this Friday as soon as Tom Delay's resignation becomes official.

Several national political magazines have TX 22 as one of the top 50 congressional races in the country to watch, even with Delay resigning, so stay tuned. I've had over 650 people take our current survey on the CD 22 candidates and the interest in the race is building after 8 of the candidates camped out at the SD 11 and SD 17 caucus rooms at the state convention.

Another Texas race to watch is the battle by Republican Van Taylor to replace Chet Edwards in the Waco area TX 17.

Van is a Marine with an MBA from Harvard; he is the only Iraq war veteran running this cycle as a Republican.

CD 17 is the most Republican district in the country still represented by a Democrat so the district can be ripe for a pickup for a solidly conservative Republican candidate like Van.
