  • I'M HOPING THAT LOTS OF DEMOCRATS AND OTHERS WHO ARE JUST FED UP WITH WORTHLESS TOM WILL CROSS OVER AND VOTE FOR CAMPBELL IN THE PRIMARY.

  • Heres the election results in greater detail:

    2006 Primary
    Tom Campbell 9,937 29.97%
    Tom DeLay 20,558 62.00%
    Total Cast: 33,160 100.0%

    *Note Delay won by getting nearly 2 of every 3 votes cast. Also note that he received over 20,500 votes alone, with his closest challenger recieving nearly 10,000 -- Now lets look at the previous primary election, where DeLay had no competion, to show Tuesday's turnout was not to be considered low by any means.

    2004 Primary
    Tom DeLay 15,490 [= Total cast]

    *Note: Here the numbers reflect that a) Delay would have beat his toughest 'o6 competition, Campbell, with the numbers of the 'o4 election where he had nay a challenger. This virtually means he could have won in his sleep (or say while being completly out of the district all together in Dc @ a fundraiser for his benefit) with the support he shares in this district.

    The turnout was not low or to be considered "only the faithful" (in terms of voting solely for delay) either. The numbers shows that Delay himself was able to turn out more than 25% more voters than he enjoyed in the the 'o4 election. Campbell nearly missed collecting 2/3 of all the number of total votes cast in 'o4. For those keeping score, combined -- they doubled the figures of 'o4 totals. Thats not even bothering to show the numbers of the other 2 candidates in the 'o6 race. So cant say it was low, or what ever point you were trying to reassure yourself with. Democrats did not effect this race AT ALL either.

    In sum, I'm not going to be as hasty to say that hes in trouble until hes gone for good.
