Breaking: 3-Judge Court Keeps Texas Redistricting Plan in Place, for Now

The good news is that the Texas primary will be on Super Tuesday and the bad news is that we are stuck with the same gerrymandered districts for one more cycle http://electionlawblog.org/?p=77373 If the panel had struck down the current gerrymandered districts, the March 1 primary would have to be moved just like in 2012.

1. In this case I think that it was probably for the best.

I would like for Texas to have some say in the nomination process irrespective of political party. It also avoids the expense of having to call another legislative session to work on the issue.

2. The Districts are so blatantly discriminatory!

There should be no question but to throw the Map out and let a bi-partisan group redraw them.
