Dermatologist Shelley Sekula Gibbs and former U.S. Senate staffer Pete Olson indicated on Wednesday they will campaign based on their contrasting service and backgrounds after emerging from a congressional contest whose 10 conservative candidates agreed on virtually every policy issue.
The pair advanced to an April 8 runoff that will produce the Republican nominee to challenge Rep. Nick Lampson, D-Stafford, in the 22nd Congressional District.

This runoff will be a hot one. The GOP establishment seems to be rallying around Olsen.
Typical. Sekula Gibbs did remarkably well in a write-in campaign last November when she was not allowed to be on the ballot because DeLay waited too long to drop out of the race. (Of course rules never stop democrats from illegally switching the names on the ballot after the deadline but surprisingly the dems sued to keep Sekula Gibbs off the ballot.)
DeLay resigned a long time before the general election (5 months). Those were rodent judges that disenfranchised Republicans from having a choice on the ballot.
There’s some kind of controversy from late 2006, involving a dispute between Sekula-Gibbs and DeLay’s remaining staff. I don’t know who is at fault in that dispute.
That probably means voters ought to rally around Sekula-Gibbs. Love that name.
BUMP what you said.
It sounds like she had a rough couple of weeks as a Congresswoma last year.
better to go with Olson. I guess.
