COULD DELAY BE THE NEXT DASCHLE?....Although Tom DeLay's Texas redistricting plan succeeded in knocking off some veteran Democratic congressmen, he should be more than a little worried about the safety of his own seat in the next election. Democrats have already fixed on the fact that DeLay won reelection with a mere 55 percent of the vote. Compare that to the average 40 point margin of victory for all Texas congressional incumbents. DeLay has never had a real challenge at the polls since first coming to Congress in 1984. This relatively close call gives Democrats hope that they can knock him off in 2006.
