Election Call Numbers Are Growing

The odds that DeLay could return as House Majority Leader are becoming smaller by the day. The Houston Chronicle reports that two new moderates, Rep. Chris Shays (R-CT) and Rep. Sherwood Boehlert (R-NY), have joined the chorus in calling for elections to select a new House Majority Leader. From the article:

"Shays, a vocal DeLay critic, said it 'would be a disaster' to have him return to a leadership position. 'There is no way he is going to be healthy' in the political sense, Shays said, and as a consequence he could cast an ethical pall over the GOP."
