Nicholas Valentino 'Nick' Lampson (born February 14, 1945), is a former educator and a Democratic former United States Representative for District 22 in southeastern Texas. In 2006, he defeated the Republican write-in candidate Shelley Sekula-Gibbs, after former Majority Leader Tom DeLay removed himself from the race.[1] Lampson represented Texas' 9th district from 1997 to 2005; he unseated Republican Steve Stockman in the 1996 general election.[2] Lampson has voted with a majority of his Democratic colleagues 86 percent of the time during the 2007-2009 Congress.[3]

Lampson was himself unseated in the 2008 general election by the Republican Pete Olson, who still holds the seat.
