DeLay endorsed; Campbell hits DeLay on Abramoff
Fort Bend Now:
U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay led a slate of incumbent candidates who won endorsement Friday from the Fort Bend County Mayor & Council Association.
After a candidates' forum at the Rosenberg Civic Center, and a vote by association members late Thursday night, the group endorsed candidates for the first time in its history. Every incumbent office holder won an endorsement.
As he did last week, Campbell called on DeLay to disclose details of his dealings "with Mr. Jack Abramoff," the disgraced Washington lobbyist who has pled guilty to federal charges of tax evasion, fraud and conspiracy to bribe public officials, in exchange for testimony about several senators and members of Congress.
"I believe Mr. DeLay needs to give us an explanation," Campbell said. "I believe we need to understand exactly what that relationship is."
