Less time than it takes for a child to be born
Rodriguez, who defeated incumbent Rep. Henry Bonilla, R-San Antonio, in a special election last December, already has raised nearly $250,000 for his 2008 campaign.
Lyle Larson, a Bexar County commissioner, is eyeing a race for the Republican nomination to challenge Rodriguez.
Larson has said he will make a decision by next fall.
Retired business executive James McGrody, announced his intention to seek the GOP nomination just days after Rodriguez defeated Bonilla, who has since been tapped by President Bush to serve as ambassador to the Organization of American States.
Also considering a GOP campaign for the congressional seat is Francisco "Quico" Canseco, a San Antonio lawyer, who made an unsuccessful bid for Congress in 2002 in the neighboring 28th district.
That filing deadline is only nine months away.
I've heard that Larson is definitely in. We could always use another Aggie in D.C. I'd look for him to be the favorite given his prior elected experience, and his huge influence in the SA GOP.
