ABSTRACT
The article reports that U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks has granted the representatives of the Republican and Democratic parties more time to submit evidence that will assist him in deciding whether former U.S. Representative Tom DeLay will remain on the state's November ballot as Republican candidate for the U.S. Congress. Sparks has given both parties until June 30, 2006 for the presentation of evidence. The ineligibility of DeLay to run for a seat in the U.S. Congress was because of his indictment on money laundering charges.
