Texas: Democrats Focus Early on Redistricting Fight

Posted January 23, 2008 at 6:50pm

The Lone Star State’s Democratic House delegation was scheduled at Wednesday’s delegation luncheon to be briefed on redistricting by representatives of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association.

According to an e-mail sent out by the office of Rep. Chet Edwards, Russ Tidwell and Tommy Townsend of the TTLA were scheduled to deliver a “political briefing” on the Texas House of Representatives and Congressional redistricting.

Nowhere has the drawing of Congressional boundaries been more contentious than in Texas over the past several years.
