While Voters Vote...DeLay Parties With Lobbyists in D.C.

Tom DeLay won't be in Houston for today's primary. Instead he's partying in D.C. at a fundraiser hosted by lobbyists Bill Paxon and Susan Molinari, both former lawmakers from New York. See the CNN report here.

Could there be better proof that DeLay cares more about his cash constituents than his those folks back in Sugarland?

The Big Buy: Coming to a house party near you

A couple of Texas filmmakers have produced a movie called "The Big Buy: How Tom DeLay Stole Congress," and Robert Greenwald and his Brave New Films (Outfoxed, the Walmart movie, etc.) are on tap to promote and distribute it.

The New York Times writes it up in this morning's paper.

Today is Primary Day

Here is Bloomberg with a round up on DeLay's primary race today, in which he confronts three Republican challengers. Stay tuned--we'll update as the news rolls in.

In Day Before Primary, DeLay Keeps His Head Low

DeLay's Republican base is a little uneasy the night before the primary...according to the Washington Post.

I don't think there is any doubt that DeLay will win the primary. The big question is if he can retain his seat come this November.

Houston Chronicle endorses Campbell for TX-22 primary

How confident (and tone deaf) is DeLay?

From the Wall Street Journal (no link):

Former Majority Leader DeLay, girding for November defense of his House seat, plans fund-raiser Tuesday hosted by lobbyists Bill Paxon and Susan Molinari.

Next Tuesday is the primary election in Texas. Nice message to voters in Sugarland, and everywhere, huh?

DeLay: It's primary election day and I'm spending it raising money from lobbyists.

DeLay' laying the ground work for the Fall

I'm not writing off the primary challengers. Who knows? But it's not likely any of them will knock him off.

What is clear though, is that DeLay is running a smart campaign on the ground.

DeLay's Pre-Primary Report

Tom DeLay had to file his pre-primary fundraising and expenses with the FEC.

What do you see of note?

Here are some interesting notes:

No media expenses I can tell.

DeLay spent $92.01 for pest control on 2/8/06. I guess those cockroaches follow him everywhere, like homing pigeons.

He spent $3895 on rent in January and February. That seems very high.
