Quan says he won't run for District 22

Herald-Coaster: "The Houston city councilman who considered a run for the District 22 U.S. Congressional seat as a Democrat announced on Monday he will not seek the office, after all.

Houston City Councilman Gordon Quan, who will be term limited in six months, endorsed Democratic candidate Nick Lampson in making the announcement he will not run a race to unseat Republican Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

Quan cited both a desire to focus on his business with Houston city council and an internal survey which places him and Lampson on equal footing in a run in the Republican-leaning district.

Lampson, who served as a Congressman in District 9 until he was unseated by Republican District Judge Ted Poe, made his announcement several weeks ago. Quan's decision to not run means the Democrats will likely avoid a divisive primary."
