GOP quits on the quitter

It only get better and better in District 22.

WASHINGTON -- Texas Republicans on Monday abandoned their court fight to replace former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay on the November ballot after being turned back at the Supreme Court.

The decision came after Justice Antonin Scalia rejected Texas Republicans' request to block an appeals court ruling saying DeLay's name should remain on the ballot.

"I think all our legal avenues are exhausted," said lawyer Jim Bopp, who argued the GOP case to allow party officials to substitute another candidate.
