Tex 22 Republicans against DeLay

The Forum has been contacted several times by Republicans from the District and by some National Republican interests about the dissatisfaction that many mainstream Repbublicans feel about how Tom DeLay has taken his extremism beyond their values. As one might hope, many Repbublicans do not share Tom DeLay's wierd worldview. Now some are voicing their discomfort with their politics being lumped in with what Tom DeLay has come to stand for.

Patricia Baig is a Repbublican from Fort Bend County (in the District) who put her money where her mouth is and took out a full page ad in her local paper to invite Republicans to protest Tom DeLay's recent speech at a local convention. The Republicans tried to discredit her, as they always do when they don't like the message, but she stands tall as a Republican who cannot tolerate Tom DeLay's intolerance for people. The Forum and Patricia Baig made contact and are entering some interesting areas for further discussion.

After a lengthy talk on the phone the Forum agreed to forward the contact information for several Repbublicans who have been contact with the Forum to Ms. Baig to see if they would be interested in working with her in future efforts. Watch this blog for further announcements regarding whether this will be a bi-partisan Forum or whether it will be working with a Republican group with similar objectives. Ms. Baig is not going away and she represents a growing sentiment in the District that Republicans have had enough of Tom DeLay.
