Tom DeLay will face a challenge in his 2006 primary from Attorney Michael Fjetland, reports today's edition of the Houston Chronicle. Fjetland has run against DeLay three times both as a Republican and an independent and lost each race. Says Fjetland:
I was not willing to run again. I had decided not to. But when the indictment came down, it became a whole new ballgame. It really does change the entire dimension of the whole thing. If he's convicted and I'm not on the ballot, then no one is.
