The Lampson race was really a squeeker despite the over 10 point lead by Lampson over the GOP opponent. If Lampson was held to under 50% there would have been a runoff, this time with the Republican on the ballot. Polls indicate that in a straight-up race Sekula-Gibbs had about a 10 point lead. DeLay screwed up the ballot by his late withdrawal so she had to run as a write-in. Lampson now has two years to convince the district he would be better than a Republican replacement. I know he is much better, but this is DeLay territory.
