Worst Texas Democratic Party Convention ever

The Alamodome is not easy walking distance from any of the hotels and they only had buses in the morning but not at night. You had to take a cab to get back to the hotel. The food court had one vendor who ran out of food on Saturday The lines were very very long.

The Alamodome is not set up for meetings. There were a limited number of elevators and most of the caucuses and meeting were on the upper floors with bad access and poor maps.

Padilla said the lawsuit was frivolous.
