Gov. Perry calls Special Election for CD 22 on the same day as the General Election on Nov 7th

So now the plot thickens....

Earlier today Governor Perry called for a Special election in CD 22, so there will be two elections on the ballot. One will be a special election for the two months of the expired term of Tom Delay and the second will be for the full term starting in Jan 2007.

Democrat Nick Lampson has indicated that he will run, and be on the ballot in both. The Republican write in candidate, Shelley Sekula-Gibbs will probably run in the special (where she'll be on the ballot) as well as the general (where her name will have to be written in). Libertarian Bob Smither will be on the general election ballot, but no word on the special election.

The deadline for placing your name on the ballot for the special election is 5p Friday, so we should know all the players by then.

BUT, if no candidate gets more than 50% of the vote in the special, there will be a special runoff in December for the last month of the unexpired term.
