Lieberman and others, take note:

Sugar Land mayor quits District 22 race

Wallace, saying GOP should be united in write-in campaign, backs Sekula-Gibbbs

The move leaves Houston Councilwoman Shelley Sekula-Gibbs as the sole Republican write-in candidate — a condition, Wallace said, for $3 million in campaign funding from the national GOP.

"Now is the time for all Republicans to unite around one candidate and preserve our conservative voice in Congress," (emphasis mine) Wallace said during a news conference at Sugar Land City Hall.

If we're going to take back anything this November, we're going to have to get a little smarter, people!
