DeLay Wins Texas GOP Primary
Posted on Mar 8, 2006
AUSTIN, March 7—Rep. Tom DeLay, facing an unusual four-way Republican primary, won the party’s nomination Tuesday, calling his victory a rejection by voters of “the politics of personal destruction.”
“I have always placed my faith in the voters, and today’s vote shows they have placed their full faith in me,” DeLay, 58, said in a statement issued by his reelection campaign.
Guess it’s pretty hard to remove an 11-term congressman from power in Texas. Even when he’s under criminal indictment for money laundering.
