DeLay fights for his political life in Texas
(2006-03-01)
By John Whitesides, Political Correspondent

SUGAR LAND, Texas (Reuters) - He has been indicted, rebuked and dethroned from his Republican leadership perch, but Tom DeLay's fight for re-election to Congress could be the biggest challenge in a long political career.

DeLay is taking the challenge seriously, hitting the campaign trail hard to tout his ability to win money for the district and reminding audiences of his long service.
At the realtors' breakfast gathering, he recalled his days a pest exterminator in the area. "I crawled under a lot of your houses and through a lot of your attics," DeLay said.

It all comes down to the money. On the Hill they are talking about doing away with earmarks and such and DeLay is on the stump telling people how good he is at working the very system they are trying to reign in.
