Morrison to Take Another Crack at DeLay

Via The Burnt Orange Report, there is news that Richard Morrison, who got more votes than any previous challenger of The Hammer (Tom DeLay), " all but announced another run at Tom DeLay in 2006 in his fundraising email yesterday" (words from BOR's Byron). I think this is great. We need to challenge Republicans wherever they may be. This year, with Morrison's strong challenge, DeLay was finally forced to spend money on his race. But as much as I love Morrison causing my least favorite congressmen headaches, I would like to see him in a race eventually that he can win. Not to say that Morrison can't win against DeLay ..... its just highly improbable. But if DeLay keeps screwing up (and chances are that he will) and is actually held accountable for his outrageous ethical violations, than Richard Morrison may have a chance. But whether he does or not, we as Democrats should be there with him. It takes a brave man to stand up to someone like DeLay. It takes a even braver one to do it twice.
