Rep. Tom DeLay will drop out of his re-election race, two Republican congressional sources told CNN on Monday.More on the story tomorrow, but shout it from the mountaintop - The Hammer Is Nailed!!!
DeLay was forced to step down as House majority leader last year after being indicted in his home state of Texas.
DeLay told Time magazine Monday that he and his wife, Christine, had been prepared for an election battle, but that he decided Wednesday to spare his suburban Houston district the mudfest to come.
"This had become a referendum on me," he told the magazine. "So it's better for me to step aside and let it be a referendum on ideas, Republican values and what's important for this district."
